Just to confuse matters slightly further, who was with Golding....Costello or Barrett? Seemingly like everything else Ripper related, reports vary......

Yes, I've looked into this Robert and he was promoted to inspector in Y Division on 14 April 1880 but reduced back down to sergeant on 4 November 1881, the reason given in Police Orders being:

"neglecting to properly visit the men on night duty, telling deliberate falsehoods respecting same, and returning to Station under the influence of drink."

On the same day he was transferred from Y Division to K Division and instructed to report to himself to Bow Police Station on 5 November 1881 (don't know whether that helps Station Cat).

That is really interesting David, thank you very much for sharing it. I can only assume that following being ordered to report to Bow Street station he was then required to work from either Poplar or Limehouse sations. The crime scene appears to be bang between both stations, so unless someone has some additional information, I guess we'll never know for certain which station these officers worked from.............

Monty can you tell me what the addresses for Limehouse and Poplar Police Stations were in 1888? Are they still the same as they are today?

I don't believe that Limehouse Police Station was built until slightly after 1888, so I suspect that the officers involved in the Mylett incident would have been stationed at Poplar Police Station. But whether that is where it is now I couldn't say. The picture posted of it earlier in this thread would suggest that it was on or near to the location of the current Limehouse Station?

For 1891, search for Samuel Leif born 1863, Devon (Find My Past) or Samuel Sey (Ancestry).

Many thanks for this Robert.



Police Station at Nos 193–195 (demolished).

¶About 1861 stables at No. 193 were taken for use by the Metropolitan Police, (fn. 232) and in 1867–8 these and the house of the builder John Jeffrey at No. 195 were adapted for use as a police station by Lathey Brothers of Battersea Park at a tendered price of £1,193 to designs by T. C. Sorby, architect. (fn. 233) This was under lease from the freeholder until the police bought the freehold in 1892. (fn. 234) In 1897–8 the site was rebuilt for the Metropolitan Police by Willmott & Sons of Hitchin at a tendered price of £9,985. (fn. 235) This was a good example of the work of the police architect, John Dixon Butler, large-scaled but well detailed, big but not intimidating — qualities which the Arts-and-Crafts style and materials were well fitted to express (Plate 23c; fig. 41). It was of three and four storeys, the latter rising to a straight-sided gable. The building was of brick, banded with stone, the main door marked by a large projecting shell-hood, the windowopenings of the lower two storeys emphatically mullioned-and-transomed in stone, and the flues grouped in two deep chimneystacks. (fn. 236) The station was closed in 1971 and subsequently demolished, being replaced by a police office in Market Way. (fn. 237)

On 28 May 1897, Limehouse Police Station opened for business; the next day, the Limehouse men supervised the grand opening of the Blackwall Tunnel. All went well until a Superintendent Beard was thrown from his horse, breaking his arm.
