A farmhouse called Bodeugan near St Asaph was plagued by a malicious poltergeist during the December of 1812. It would destroy pots and plates, and would throw water over the tenants. Much of what we know about this event comes from a letter sent to the owner by the exasperated tenant, who claims that in one instance,
‘we went to bed about ten o’clock Saturday night and it began to kick and pinch the servants and pulling the bed clothes to the floor and the two woman along with them, and has done great deal of damages, and if it will continue we must leave the house.’
The belief of the tenant was that the poltergeist was the result of conjurors, or malicious persons cursing them or the house.
