The Story Of The White Witch Of Jamaica
by Treshauna Fillington

Fictions or Facts nobody is certain. All that is left is what is known as the Rose Hall Great house sitting on approximately 6,600 acres of land in Montego Bay Jamaica.

For centuries there is a tale that there was a white Mistress Named Annie Palmer who used voodoo to kill her husbands, slaves and a host of lovers.

She was named Annie Mae Patterson at birth by her English mother and her Irish Father. During her childhood her family migrated to Haiti but she soon became an orphan as both parents died of Yellow fever. It was her nanny in Haiti that was left with the task of raising Annie and it is rumored that it was the nanny that taught Annie voodoo.

By the time Annie reaches adulthood she moved to Jamaica on the quest of finding a wealthy husband. She met and married the then owner of Rose hall great house, John Palmer. It is said that months after the wedding bliss wore off Annie became tired of her husband and cheated on him with other Slaves. 

Legend has it that John learnt of the lovers and beat her.  Annie found a way of getting rid of John by poisoning his coffee.  She re married twice and both husbands died under mysterious circumstances making her very wealthy. There must have been a great buzz taking place on the estate after the death of three husbands.

Not only was Annie very wealthy but she was also perceived to be mean and cruel. She would give orders to torture and kill slaves and watch from her balcony. She has drove fear and terror on the entire estate with her voodoo practice and cruelty. The slaves saw it fitting to name her “The White Witch of Rose Hall”.

After her reign of terror, it is said that some slaves plotted and killed her in her bedroom. After her death they burned her belongings fearing that if they didn’t, she would come back to haunt them. She was buried on the estate and up to today others claim that her spirit haunts the estate.

So if you are up for that scary and eerie feeling, catch a glimpse of Annie or listen to the banging of doors that visitors claim to experience, then visit the Rose Hall Great house.

If you are lucky you may see her riding a horse, see her in the mirror in her bedroom or in photos you have taken while at the estate.
