A grumpy, miserly man in life, Newberry Will
died and was buried in Whateley Cemetery
before it was wiithdrawn
into the World of Daventry
from the Other World
. His gravestone reads:
"1643 Here lies Newberry Will,
His life was finished 'cause he took ill,
But none'll miss him, he should've been wiser,
'tis his own fault for bein' such a miser."
His spirit was bound in chains and haunted Whateley Manor, until Rosella discovered the bag of coins in his grave. When she returned the coins to his spirit, the apparition vanished.
Newberry Will is the first of the ghosts encountered in King's Quest IV: The Perils of Rosella. He was clearly inspired by A Christmas Carol.
