... There was never any communication between "it" and I. It felt like it was just observing me. In all I think it only lasted about 2-3 minutes, all the while my eyes were wide open and I did not see anything. .... My door was also closed and locked....
...I did however find out later in life that one of my family members was a really really bad person. He did terrible things to members of my family and maybe, just maybe that was him passing through trying to bring me down with him.

... This continued for about 5 minutes, until I felt drawn, or compelled to look across the field which borders the back of the park. There, about 100 yards away stands a line of trees, at the lower end of the field, this is met at right angles, by a second row of trees heading away into the distance, in a second field. My eyes suddenly focused on the tree which stands nearest the junction of the two rows of trees. This tree was shaking back and forth, rhythmically, and forcefully, as if being physically shaken. The trees on either side, as well as the row of trees heading away at right angles did not move at all. It was very still, and there wasn't even the slightest breeze, but this one tree was shaking very much, and all of the others nearby were completely motionless.
This was pretty scary, but I was determined to find out what was causing it, so I left the park, and headed down the road (in the opposite direction from which I'd already come) which would take me to a point directly at the end of the row of trees, so that I could look down the row, to see if anything could be causing the tree to move.
I felt the same "following" presence all the way down the road, to the end of the line of trees, and even heard twigs snap behind us on at least three occasions, but every time I turned round, nothing was there. There was nothing to see, along the line of trees, and by the time I got there, the one moving tree had stopped. I continued walking a little further, to see if anything else would happen, but a couple of minutes later, the feeling of being followed suddenly stopped. The presence left, and everything immediately felt fine. I went back over our route, and found nothing out of order.
I've never seen anything else like this since, and I still can't explain it. There was no wind to move the tree, and even if it was a freak gust or something, it lasted for several minutes, and didn't affect any of the surrounding trees.

I have a slightly strange update to add to the quoted part of the OP.
The tree in question - the one which drew my attention and shook back & forth without any wind etc- seems to have died. All of the other trees in the area seem fine, but this one tree looks dead to me!
It's the first time I have looked at it in about a year or more... I'll upload photos so you can see what I mean.
Here I've circled the tree for clarity. (sorry the photos aren't better)
I don't really know what to say, other than it seems very odd to me, that the only tree in that area which seems to have died, is the very one which drew my attention with it's strange rhythmic shaking on the day I felt the "prescence" all those years ago.
