Hi, I am the current owner of Bank House and am very intrigued by your post, would love to know more about it's history and the hauntings..

Bank House, are you still living there, its been nearly a year, or have the hauntings made you flee?

If you're still interested i can see if i can find that book your property is mentioned in.

Welcome to RootsChat, Ian. When you've made a couple more posts you can use the private message option. Can you tell us something about Bank House which isn't private e.g. doesn't concern living people?

Bank house featured in a series on Lancashire ghosts in the 1980's, and in a book Lancashire ghosts and legends. Alot of the facts were wrong though. For example the originally owner did not own a mill.

Who were the original owners?
Some contributors to this thread have not been back on RootsChat since. If they haven't changed their email addresses and their email notifications have remained switched on , they should receive a message that there has been a new reply to the thread.
Links given in some posts no longer work, at least they didn't work for me.
Ordnance Survey map of Haslingden, published mid-1840s is among National Library of Scotland online collection. There are also later maps. They can be compared side-by-side.

I think it was my great great grandfather, Ihave to admit I get confused by the number of greats and the name Richard is in every generation, Richard horricks Parkinson. He built bank house and the attached houses. Bank house sticks out slightly with a side window we think it was so he could keep an eye on his tenants.
The house stayed in the family until 1973.

This is the 1891 census for Bank House, Blackburn Road, Haslingden
Listed between 201 and 205 Blackburn Road

Richard Parkinson, Head, married, 60, Wholesale Draper, Haslingden
Ellen, Wife, Mar, 46, Manchester
Thomas, Son, 23, Wholesale Draper, Haslingden
Ada, Daur, 18, Pupil Teacher, Haslingden
Fanny, Daur, 14, Scholar, Haslingden

Ellen and family were still living there in 1901 and just Thomas and his sisters in the later census.  In 1901 Thomas was listed as a Print Waste Merchant. In the 1881 census they were living at 163 Blackburn Road, Haslingden.  There does not appear to be a 203 or Bank House on Blackburn Road  listed in 1881
Was that the same Richard?
