The Snettisham Ghost
By HERBERT E. WISEMAN
^OT the least part of the work-"-^ achieved by the Society forPsychical Research since its foundationin 1882 has been the collection andthorough investigation of stories ofapparitions sent to them by people fromall parts of the British Isles. Amongstthose emanating from or connected insome way with Norfolk, one of the best-authenticated is the story of theSnettisham ghost.The story begins with the visit of a
Mrs.
Goodeve, a Londoner, to friendsliving at 5 Rodney Place, Clifton, nearBristol. This house was reputed to behaunted by a former occupant, a Mrs.Seagrim, but during the two yearsprevious to Mrs. Goodeve's visit nothinguncanny had been experienced by thetenants, Mr. and Mrs. Ackland.It appears that Mrs. Goodeve possessedpsychical power, as (according to
F.
W. H. Myers who investigated thecase, with other members of the Societyfor Psychical Research) she 'had hadsome previous experiences of apparitions, which all appeared to be veridical,but she had paid but little attention tothem and had never sought to encourage such visitations in any way'.Myers, who interviewed her on severaloccasions, described her as 'a widowlady moving in good society, with children grown-up and known to manypeople as a cheerful, capable, activewoman who had seen much of the worldand had plenty of business of her own toattend to and was by no means given todwelling on things morbid or mysterious'.During the night of 8 October 1893,Mrs Goodeve woke suddenly and sawleaning over her the sad and emaciatedbut kindly face of a woman whose headwas swathed in a shawl. The womansaid: 'Follow me', whereupon Mrs.Goodeve, quite unafraid, rose andfollowed her into the next room, whichwas the drawing-room. The aparition
