Some houses have secrets far too terrifying to uncover. That’s what this one family learned the hard way!
“My extended family used to live in a really old house located just north of London. Previously, it used to be Queen Victoria’s stop when she was traveling in the area. I’m told that my uncle, when he was younger, never believed in ghosts or spirits. He would be the first one to call it a load of rubbish. He was sleeping one night and was awoken by a man staring at him at the end of his bed, dressed in an old army uniform. My uncle froze for a few seconds, panicked, and flicked the bedside lamp on. All of a sudden, the mystery man vanished. He refused to sleep in that room from that night onwards.
We later found out that the man was a previous owner who had returned from the war to find his wife having an affair. He was so furious that his wife reported having told her he would do the worst thing possible to get back at her. He slaughtered the rest of their family (their twin sons) and killed himself in the back of the garden, where a forest was located. The funny thing is that since my family bought the property, my uncle had twin sons, my mum had twin sons, and my uncle’s brother (who is also a part owner of the property) had twin sons. The weirder part is that my brothers and my uncle/aunt’s kids were playing near the forest when they were in their early teens, and kept on saying they heard boys laughing. But they couldn’t see anybody there, not knowing the house’s history at that time.”
