1. Bloody Bones 

    A boogeyman of english folklore.  The stories originated in Great Britain in the 16th century where they were particularly common in Lancashire and Yorkshire, and spread to North America, where the stories were common in the Southern USA. The Oxford English Dictionary cites 1550 as the earliest written appearance as “Hobgoblin, Rawhed, and Bloody-bone”.

    Bloody-Bones is usually said to live near ponds, but according to Ruth Tongue in Somerset Folklore, “lived in a dark cupboard, usually under the stairs. If you were heroic enough to peep through a crack you would get a glimpse of the dreadful, crouching creature, with blood running down his face, seated waiting on a pile of raw bones that had belonged to children who told lies or said bad words.

    I thought Rawhead and Bloody Bones was supposed to be a gigantic razorback boar.
