York, England, has a lot of tales, one of which is 5 College Street where it is said that there is the ghost of  a young girl who has been both seen and heard on the upper floor.

In the middles ages plague hit the city, the family in the house at the time were sufferers and like many others, when people became infected, locals sealed up the houses in an attempt to stop the spread. The parents suffered the horrific decline into death and their young daughter did not. She was immune but the locals were so fearful of the plague that they never let her out.

A fate as hellish as any she was instead sealed up with her rotting parents and left to starve to death. If there was a reason for a young lady to haunt an area perhaps this really is one.
