Boggart House, Hindley, Lancashire

Looking for information about the Boggart House located on Swan Lane in Hindley, Lancashire.
Was on 1871 census. Where did that name come from? Any possiblity that this still exists?

Any info would be helpful.

Hi there.

I think this link will answer your Question.

This second link makes some interesting reading.

Not as grand as the name sounds.

Smile Re: Boggart House, Hindley, Lancashire

Steve,

Very facinating story, thank you! Great information to add to our family history.
Unfortunate that they are no longer there, but at least I now know what the Boggart Houses looked like.

Also, I was not able to open the second link. It seems to be broken.

Again, thank you so much.

Re: Boggart House, Hindley, Lancashire

The second link just confirmed what a Boggart was really, so it wasn't that important.
