If there is anyone haunting the house, there’s a good chance that it’s the mother, Ellen Allen.

According to ‘A Christian Philanthropist of Dublin – a memoir of Richard Allen’, by Hannah Maria Wigham, published in 1886 and available on-line [from which the Victorian print on the last page was plundered], despite being of ‘delicate health’, Ellen produced roughly a child a year for the first fifteen years following her marriage in 1798, before climbing into her grave in 1819, where she may – or may not – rest in peace.

I don’t know Boooooog if I’d mention that to Mrs. Boooooog.
