A new book, The King’s Psychic, tells the remarkable story about a wealthy doctor who lived at Ballamoar Castle near Ballaugh. He dabbled in the occult and had secretly treated King Edward VIII in the build up to the king’s eventual abdication. Here the author Sean Stowell describes the doctor’s role in those historic events, and how he then went on to influence some in Britain’s High Command in World War Two after he moved to the Isle of Man.
Not unexpectedly given the prevalence of gossip about him, both my grandmothers separately picked up fascinating gossip about Dr Alexander Cannon, the ‘psychic’ doctor who played a secret role in the 1936 abdication.
