Mary Queen Of Scots House Ghost Hunts
Mary Queen of Scots spent a month in Jedburgh in the autumn of 1566. It was the turning point in her dramatic life, and the beginnings of the troubles that led to her death. Inside the house a unique collection of objects and pictures give you a moving insight into the life of Mary. They include a lock of her hair, a glittering 17th century embroidery about her family and her death mask.
It is difficult to be sure of the exact age of Mary, Queen of Scots’ House, due to a lack of documentary material and because the house has been altered many times over the years. However, we know that
Jedburgh’s position just 12 miles north of the Border made it vulnerable to attack from the English in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. In 1409 Jedburgh Castle was demolished – it was frequently held by the English, and the Scottish Government felt that it would be better for it to be destroyed. The Castle was replaced by a number of fortified tower houses, which, together with four ports (gates) enabled the town to be defended from invasion from all directions.
When Mary, Queen of Scots arrived in Jedburgh in October 1566, she was accompanied by a large retinue and the party would have needed a number of buildings to accommodate them all. Fire broke out in Mary’s first lodging, forcing her to move. It is known that Mary paid Lady Ferniehirst £40 Scots for the rent of the Lord Compositor’s house in Jedburgh. Gradually, over the years, all the other fortified houses disappeared, leaving Mary, Queen of Scots’ House inextricably linked to the Queen and her visit.
In 2005 the first group of paranormal investigators visited MQS and reported a level of unexplained phenonium.
