Some say that she had been cheated by his business partners and was now penniless apart from a diamond ring. She was put in a room, with a rope leading to a bell with which to summon a servant.

Two other spectres here include a monk who was murdered in the Civil War, and a nun in a long grey gown on the staircase.
