Biography*21 December 1912 The following article appeared in the Wellington Evening Post in New Zealand on the 21 Dec 1912. The Mrs Thompstone referred to is assumed to Be Margaret Mary:

"AN ENGLISH SPOOK
With the approach of Christmastide a weird "spook" story became current in Anslow, three miles from Burton, England. It is receiving the close attention of the police, who, however, are baffled in their investigations.
Park farm is an isolated homestead occupied by a widow 'named Thompstone, who has residing with her a brother and several domestics. For some days, towards the end of October, loud and mysterious knocking was heard at each door of the house in turn, and although close observation was kept, both inside and out, no human agency was visible.
So distraught was Mrs. Thompstone at the persistent knocking that she drove over to Burton and enlisted the aid of the police, who watched the house inside and out. On one occasion an officer held the latch of a door which the mysterious agency seemed to favour for an hour and a half and just as he released his hold, his patience exhausted, the knocking recurred. The officer darted out, but nobody was to be seen.
It is stated that when the blows, which resemble those of a hammer, are rained on the door the .latter does not vibrate in the least. The whole village is perturbed, and the occupants of the farmhouse are quite unnerved."12

Death Reg*March 1970 Margaret's death was registered in the March Quarter of 1970 in the Burton Registration District.6

The tramway opened in 1887 and closed around 1925. Remains of the track can still just be seen in a shallow cutting through woodland, leading to the old transhipment dock, just below Bosley bottom lock.
