The Ghost Hunter by Ivan Jones. Balfour of Belford, Northumberland. Many of the supernatural entities in this article originate in the sixteenth century — long before the rise of Spiritualism in the nineteenth century, and in these earlier entities many of the facets often now regarded as ghostly can be seen in particular poltergeist activity. This is a question posed many times, but again is worth repeating: Many folk often take ghost tales at their word, but when a ghost story has developed out of a goblin story, are the believers in the tale really believing in goblins and faeries?
Perhaps, looking from the opposite viewpoint, the culture of goblins was simply used back in the sixteenth century to explain what our own popular culture now regards as ghosts?
The Ghost Catcher: A Bengali Folktale by Martha Hamilton
Whether cultural, psychological or even supernatural, it is a fascinating process. So who, or rather what were the creatures said to torment us? Their sole purpose of existence appears to have been the misery of humankind, to which they applied themselves with great vigour both alone and in packs. Bogies were said to be members of the Unseelie Court, the race of faerie-folk whose aim it was to kill, hurt and destroy anything human.
Bogies were often thought of as shapeshifters, so not one of the creatures would look the same as another, and in some cases were said to be creatures of no form, so no weapon known to man could harm them. In some legends though, fire was a sure way to kill a Bogie, but the creature would have to be held in the flames by pitchforks until the moment of death. Brags were also a form of Bogie. According to the folklorist Balfour, Brags were found in many places throughout Northumberland and Durham. One account of such a creature was the Picktree Brag, which terrorised the Picktree area, often changing its shape to that of a calf or a naked man with no head, or simply to a horse where he tricked the local populace into riding him, whereupon the Brag would throw them into ponds or over hedges.
Like most Bogies, Bullbeggars were shapeshifters that excelled in tormenting travellers. Bullbeggars tended to take human form, pretending to be sick or injured on the road, and when approached by a concerned person, would leap to their feet and give chase, increasing in size to massive proportions and roaring as they came.
A Barguest or Padfoot was also said to be a shapeshifter, similar in nature to a Bogie and was reported across counties north of Leeds. The creature in its natural form was said to resemble a huge black dog, with flaming eyes and horns, and acted as a death omen for those that saw the creature.
However, as helpful as he was to the locals, his true bogie nature came out to play with strangers to the area, who he would terrorise and chase without remorse. Finally, a priest was called in to force the bogie out of the area, and he trapped Capelthwaite beneath the River Bela in an exorcism. Generally, Dwarfs are described as short, stocky and very hairy, often dressed in animal skins, and like the rest of Goblindom, possessing a short temper with humankind. The Duergar are your football hooligans of the Dwarf Class in Goblindom.
Groping blindly through the dark and freezing cold, the traveller noticed with some relief a small stone hut a short distance ahead with a blazing fire in the hearth. Entering the hut he found it to be empty, so sat on one of the stone seats by the fire and fed it some kindling. Shortly, a dwarf entered wearing lambskins and moleskins and scowled at the startled and now rather worried man, but said nothing and sat on a stone seat opposite him across the fire. Luckily, the traveller was well versed in the regions tales of the dark dwarfs and decided rather that running for it an probably dying from the cold or a Duergar knife in the back, he would sit in silence by the fire.
