Conjuring 2: Enfield Hauntings

Enfield-Poltergeist-Children

As you may know and you probably heard about The Conjuring 2 is based on a true story that happened in 1977. The story attracted considerable press coverage in British newspapers such as the Daily Mail and Daily Mirror. Also in the US newspaper such as The National Enquirer during the 1970’s.

The-Daily-Mirror-Saturday-10th-September-1977

In August 1977, single parent Peggy Hodgson called police to her rented home in Enfield after two of her four children claimed that furniture was moving and knocking sounds were heard on walls. The children included Margaret, age 13, Janet, age 11, Johnny, age 10 and Billy, age 7. A police constable saw a chair slide on the floor but couldn’t determine if it moved by itself or was pushed by someone.  No one was around the police when it happened. She took notes and left the scene quickly.

Other reports from the newspaper sources from the Daily Mail and the Daily Mirror, they claimed they heard demonic voices, loud noises, thrown rocks and toys, overturned chairs and levitation of children. These reporters had interview Peggy Hodgson and she told these incidents really happened to her and the children. Until it ended 1979.

The Daily Mail and the Daily Mirror reporters were bribing the children to tell them the truth that they were pranking their house it was haunted. Unfortunately, it really happened. Kids in that age in the 1970’s would not understand what was going on. The reporters back then wanted the truth, unfortunately, back then did not believe that the Hodgson resident was truly haunted by an evil spirit.

When the paranormal team was investigating the house, they had their equipment to record, on VHS recorder for video, a reel tape to record audio, flashguns from camera to record video of still images. Everything was fully charge, but when they put the equipment on all the equipment was fully drained of no energy. They did not know what was going on. A ghost or spirits would drained the energy source to gained more energy or manifest itself.

The possibility of levitation, eyewitness account looked up through their window and saw one of the children through the window levitated off the bed towards the ceiling. The children weren’t jumping on their bed, because they were resting. It’s impossible to fake it, because since they were children, children cannot fake being levitated.

Psychic Phenomenon The Enfield Poltergeist
Psychic Phenomenon The Enfield Poltergeist Goings on at the Hodgson household in Green Street Enfield as funiture and toys were September 1977

But the family was suffering through the years, especially the children they were being tease and bullied at school.  The students were calling them “ghost kids,” people did not understand what was going on.

The demonic voice that was coming out from one of the children was not a ventriloquist act, a child could not possibilities do this.

dresser 2

One of the girls who was heavily sedated still had the strength to struggle from the men who were holding her down. Eventually, she fell asleep. Moments later, the investigators heard some noise in the bedroom and they found her on top of the dresser. She did not know how she got there.

A former occupant who lived in the house before Peggy Hodgson moved in was a 72-year-old guy who died in the chair of the living room who went blind.  Could this be the culprit who was torturing the children? And bringing evil.

On Halloween 2011, BBC News featured comments from a radio interview with photographer Graham Morris, who claimed that many of the events were genuine.

My theory is this, when you buy, rent or lease a house and the price is very cheap, be suspicious.  Ask questions about the history of the house or do your own investigation by going to the historical society in your area.
