Rev. William Atkinson (1767-1847) the Curate and then Vicar of Canewdon, Essex from ca. 1797 to 1847.

 

 

 

A short while ago I finished a major update to my research article on Widow Eliza Frost Kersteman of Lambourne Hall in Canewdon parish Essex.

 

Now I finished a major update on the research article on Rev. William Atkinson who was the Curate then Vicar of the church in Canewdon.

 

Widow Lodwick and the 2nd wife of Rev. William Atkinson were sisters and were said to be Witches in the 1820's to 1860's Canewdon.


The people of the village of Canewdon wanted Cunning man or Witch Doctor James Murrell of Hadleigh, Essex to check them out.


But the aging Vicar refused to allow it.

 



REV. WILLIAM ATKINSON (1767-1847)

Canewdon was one of my old stomping grounds (I'm an Essex girl). The church there has a huge reputation for hauntings, occult practices - especially the darker side such a sacrifice, blood letting etc. Police used to issue warnings about the place.
