THE GHOSTLY LEGEND BEGINS!
It all started with a family myth, a legend and a curse that has been told to me and my ancestors for many generations, passed down through our family all about the men in our family been Cornish smugglers and pirates and one that lived on his own island and was shunned by our family. My grandmother was told stories as a small girl about her great, great, great grandfather and his pirate ways and his father before him who was supposedly a daring pirate. As I got older I moved away from Cornwall, only to return 20 years later in search of my ancestors history, what I found was clues that set me in search of a real treasure a 200 year old book that finally shed light upon my families ghastly past, a blood line of pirates, smugglers and ship wreckers, this is my story and your haunted experience.
I as I researched the Newquay smugglers and pirates what I also found where many ghostly legends, stories of murder and hauntings, true accounts of people's ghost sightings and so much more!
