John Daniel’s Apparition, Beaminster

The following 18th century experience which concerns Beaminster School and the Grade I listed 15th century St Mary’s Church, appeared in the Gentleman’s Magazine (1774) and reprinted in John Ingram’s ‘The Haunted Homes and Family Traditions of Great Britain’ (1897). It is an interesting case and if the Gentlemans Magazine is to be believed a very singular story that comes well authenticated.
