HP Lovecraft and the Billingtons

Has anyone read what the horror genre writer HP Lovecraft has to say about the Billingtons?

Besides John Billington's act of homicide I have found two other recorded instances involving Billingtons and double murders; one in Philadelphia, and the other in England.

Also four members of the Billington family were official British Crown hangmen at the turn of the 19th century; a father and three sons. The father hung 147 individuals in Northern Ireland, including several members of the IRA.

Looks like our ancestors had a dark side to them.
