Ghosts of St Johns Mansion


St Johns Mansion is thought to be haunted by many spirits but in particular there are two sisters who are vociferous in their attempts to drive people away from visiting this Jacobean Mansion.

It is thought two sisters both met tragic ends at the house; one was burnt to death when her clothing caught light while trying to dry herself by an open fire and the other fell ill after the house was broken into and many believe she literally died of fright.

Some of the paranormal activity within the building includes ghostly footsteps and voices thought to belong to young girls. Over the years the figure of a woman has also been seen wearing long clothing and almost oblivious of anybody else. Children have been seen walking the many corridors of St Johns Mansion. Their laughter is often heard as is the sound of running. There is also a spirit of a man who is violent towards women which was picked up in the cellar as well as lurking figures being seen in the corner.

History of St Johns Mansion


During the Dissolution of the Monasteries on the orders of Henry VIII, St Johns Mansion was granted to Anthony Stoughton, for services to the King. The land was later inherited by his eldest son William but neither of the two actually ever lived in the house, instead they leased it out to others such as Richard Townsende, who was a yeoman at Warwick. Eventually the land was inherited by the son of William Stoughton, Anthony Stoughton Jr, who built a house on the site. It is important to note that in the East Wing of the house there is a door lintel which bears the date 1626 and the initials A.S. The house remained in the possession of the Stoughton family until 1960.

The land on which St Johns Mansion stands was given to the establishment of the Hospital of St John the Baptist in the middle of the 12th Century, during the reign of Henry II. The hospital itself was created by William De Beaumont who was then Earl of Warwick.

This hospital provided two purposes which were to help the local poor and ill and to provide casual overnight boarding and food to impoverished travelers such as pilgrims. The hospital of St John the Baptist was one of two such hospitals in the town of Warwick at the time. The other was the Hospital of St Michael, founded with the sole purpose of providing help and respite to those in the parish suffering from leprosy. 

In 1291, the hospital was noted to own a dovecote worth 2 shillings. Additionally, the ploughing rent of land owned by the hospital was valued at 10 shillings per year. In 1337 the hospitals brethren was granted protection. At this time it was suggested that some building renovation was necessary.

It is known that in 1610 the site comprised four standing buildings, including a gatehouse topped with crenelations. The largest of the three other buildings has crosses at the roofs apex, suggesting its religious use as the sites chapel. At the time the hospital site also included a cemetery, where remains have often been dug up during refurbishment or remodeling works on the House. The first recorded case was in the 1830s when work was being undertaken in the kitchen garden. In 1987, two workmen digging the front end of St Johns Mansion discovered two skulls.
