Squire, J. R. M. (ca. 1860)
American medium and editor of the Spiritualist weekly Banner
of Light, who visited England in 1859. He was introduced
into society under the auspices of the medium D. D. Home,
with whom he frequently held joint sittings. In the same year,
the American minister presented Squire at court.
Lockhart Robertson described in the Spiritual Magazine
(1860) some displays of psychic force in his sitting with Squire.
Reportedly, a heavy circular table was tossed in the air and
thrown on the bed when the medium placed his left hand on
the surface; his other hand was held and his legs were tied to
the chair on which he sat. Afterward, the table was twice lifted
onto the head of Robertson and the medium.
