Chime children

I'm writing an urban fantasy murder mystery that takes place in modern day New York and I'm including elements of various folklores and I'm having trouble digging up any information on Chime children.

I have searched 'chime child' and 'chime children' on google and so far I have found this article:

and this video:

But otherwise I haven't been able to find any information at all on them.

Really I'm just looking for more information on them, be they other sources I can look into, the origins of the story, any folk tales that are actually about chime children or just anything anyone might know off-hand about chime children would be really useful.

Edit note: I accidentally put the wrong link in for the first link. It's fixed now.
