Pollock Twins

John Pollock was born in 1920 and was raised as a Protestant before converting to Catholicism. Florence Pollock grew up as a member of the Salvation Army and converted to Catholicism when marrying John. Despite his Christian faith, John believed strongly in reincarnation. John told interviewers that he would pray to God for evidence of reincarnation, proving himself right and the priests wrong.

The couple’s third child, Joanna Pollock, born in 1946, and was their first daughter. Then in 1951 their second daughter, Jacqueline, was born. At the age of three, Jacqueline fell into a bucket, which resulted in a permanent scar on her forehead over her right eye .She also had a roundish dark birthmark on the left side of her waist. The girls were inseparable and Joanna liked to ‘mother’ Jacqueline. She said she had a premonition she would never grow up, often saying, ‘I will never be a lady.’

On 7 May 1957, when Joanna was eleven and Jacqueline six, they were struck by a car while walking to church with a friend. Both were killed instantly and the incident made headlines throughout Britain.

Their parents were devastated, but while Florence tried to avoid thinking about the girls, John did not. On the day of the accident he experienced a vision of them in heaven. He also sensed their presence in a room of the house, and took to spending time there in order to be close to them.

He later said he felt the girls’ deaths had been ‘punishment from God’ for having prayed for proof of reincarnation. But he also felt that his prayer would be answered, with his daughters being reborn into the family. His wife rejected this notion and for a time this dispute threatened their marriage.

Florence became pregnant again, and John became convinced that Joanna and Jacqueline were about to reincarnate into the family as twins. Florence’s doctor predicted a single birth, based on foetal heartbeat and the lack of twins in either parent’s family history. Nonetheless, she gave birth to twin girls on 4 October 1958 (named Gillian and Jennifer). Jennifer had a birthmark that looked like Jacqueline’s scar, and a second birthmark on her waist, as Jacqueline did.

When the twins were about three, they were given a box of toys that had belonged to their deceased sisters. Gillian claimed the doll that had belonged to Joanna and Jennifer claimed the one that had belonged to Jacqueline. They both said the dolls had been gifts from Santa Claus and they had, indeed, been Christmas presents. When Gillian saw a toy clothes-wringer that had also been a ‘Santa Claus’ present to Joanna, she said, ‘There is my toy wringer’, adding that Santa had brought it. The girls argued over none of the toys.

Florence Pollock occasionally overheard Gillian and Jennifer discussing the details of the accident. Once she came across Gillian cradling Jennifer’s head, saying, ‘The blood’s coming out of your eyes. That’s where the car hit you’. Gillian once pointed to Jennifer’s forehead birthmark and said, ‘That is the mark Jennifer got when she fell on a bucket’. On another occasion, when the girls complained about the lunch they were having at home, their mother said they could have lunch at school. They answered, ‘We’ve done that before.’ This was not true of Gillian and Jennifer, but had been true of Joanna and Jacqueline.

Pioneering reincarnation researcher Ian Stevenson investigated the case after learning about it through newspaper coverage. Stevenson, who studied many pairs of twins who remembered past lives, concludes that the Pollock twins’ case very compelling. This, together with that of another pair of monozygotic twins, Indika and Kakshappa Ishwara, provides some of the strongest evidence in favour of reincarnation.
