The Tomago house ghost Port Stephens: NSW
« on: April 16, 2019, 12:25:58 AM »
Does the Widow Maria Windeyer still watches over Estate she worked tirelessly to keep from bankruptcy ?

Built by barrister Richard and Maria Windeyer, Tomago House formed the nucleus of what was, in the mid 19th century, a vast agricultural estate and the country residence of one of the nationís leading politico-legal figures.

Work on the house started in the early 1840s. The vineyard was established, with plantings from James King of Irrawang, who was known to be producing good wines by 1840.

Windeyer died in 1847, leaving his wife Maria to complete the property, refinance it and maintain viability. This she did, adding to it with a Chapel built in 1860-1861. Mariaís interest in the property is thought to have continued after her death, with inexplicable sightings of an elderly woman rocking in her chair on the verandah, and keeping a watchful eye in the cellars.

Does her ghost still keep a watchful eye over the old homestead?

A few years ago I drove past the place and it looked rafter forlorn. I have heard a few stories of people who claim to have encountered Maria Windeyer or some one they assumed was her?

The place was at one time being used as Wedding venue.

There has been quite a few stories from people who have had strange encounters while attending Wedding receptions held there.

On Guest taking a photograph of the Homestead alleges he had a cold chill as if his personal space was challenged by some one up in his face? He put it down to imagination until he later saw the photograph.

For those who cannot see the Photograph I suggest you join the forum. As there is across Australian Haunting forum many interesting photographs of haunted places.

Here is a photograph below of Maria Windeyer Alive. Then compare the alleged spectre in the picture of the previous post?

Does Maria Windeyer still keep a watchful eye over the place she struggled in life to maintain? Perhaps old habit die hard? Even in the after life.

Hi KANACKI, no wonder the guy felt that his personal space had been "breached" along with the chilling cold.

This is also when an expert in photography is needed badly, to either prove or disprove the "potential" of their being a Spirit in the second photograph.

Getting input from others, would once again, provide enough evidence which would indicate that an investigation too Tomago House is necessary.

I won't provide my opinion at this stage, although I do have one, even with not all information being present.

Sorry KANACKI, but if no other Members comment within 6 weeks, I will Post my opinion.

Hello Simon

I am no expert on Photographs I know that they can be faked with double exposure etc... So this is why I take the view "alleged" However I  have felt my personal space invaded once many years ago in Castle in Wales. I saw nothing but felt spine tingling cold my hairs stood up on the back of my neck and felt some one in my face and hostile. Seeing that picture fake or not triggered flash back to that encounter so many years ago. However it opinions will be appreciated on the topic. I believe a few ghost hunters have allegedly researched the property. Hopefully there is people who will read this and ad their stories connected to this old house.
