A number of restless spirits haunted the Whateley Manor, which may have been the reason the estate withdrew from the Other World into the World of Daventry. The ghosts each longed for an item that was in their grave. Rosella, during her adventures in Tamir, found the graves and recovered the items and returned them to the proper spirits. When each soul had been put to rest, the final ghost revealed sheet music to her that she would find useful in entering the Aegyptian Crypt. The ghosts that haunted the estate were Hiram Bennet, Betty Cowden, Newberry Will, Lord Coningsby, and Willy.
