Rumors spread through town that the family brought the demonic activity onto themselves and eventually to their village. Unfortunately, the hauntings followed them.

The Haunted Belvry Castle. Margaret Hodnett lived there in the 17 th Century. She embellished in displaying mirrors all over the castle, as a reminder of her wealth and renowned beauty. An unfilled love affair led to tragedies at the castle. After a year of unforgiving battles, the Hodnetts surrendered.
He found Margaret, with her beauty lost in a skeletal state, starved from the warfare. In his rage, he smashed her favorite mirror to pieces, meeting his death by one of the Hodnetts' sword. Needless to say, Margaret descended into a state of insanity.
