Default Didn't she speak Welsh?

Didn't she speak Welsh? Don't ask me who said she did - I've no idea - Unlikely skill for a Londoner.

Apparently Joseph moved in with the Beers at 17 Portpool Lane.
Don't know how long they'd been there.

John Kelly,Jno,married and was in Turville Street in 1881 Census.
That's the Old Nichol proper.
Went from carman to hawker.

An unnamed witness who spoke to the Daily News, as reported on 10th November 1888:

"Another girl states that she knew the deceased two years ago. She was then living at Cooney's lodging house in Thrawl street, Spitalfields. She walked the streets, and while living there met Barnett. She went to live with him in Dorset street. Kelly was a Welsh woman, and could speak Welsh fluently."

By co-incidence in November 1887 a girl called Mary was living in Miller's Court and was shown in the workhouse entry as the widow of Wm. a miner. Yet this was still not our Mary. Mary A Newman lived at 4 Miller's Court and was born around 1858. It appears that this Mary survived beyond November 1888.

17 Thrawl Street.

Nichols spent much of her last few weeks at 18 Thrawl Street.

Very close proximity to the London City Mission in Thrawl Street.
Free Sunday breakfasts.
Of interest to any budding CV.

Even Kidney resided at 12 Thrawl Street in 1889.

Almost as popular as Flower and Dean Street and Dorset Street

Reckon this is our Mary Kelly.

Turned up in the 1881 Census being treated for VD.

Oldest brother,Jno, married Louisa and lived in Turville Street during the 1881 Census.
Old Nichol.

Think a lot of Peartree Court slum was torn down and rebuilt early 1880s.

Have previously looked at the family of Shoreditch Kellys (info is also on Ancestry and there are also some family tree connections on there). Aside from the name similarities it was hard to fit any of the other facts and/or tie down MAK as MJK so it is useful to see what others make of this one. More effort by experienced Ripperologists may pay dividends. They do seem to have baptism records so generally exact birth dates can be obtained easily online. Have been directing efforts elsewhere though.

DJA - "Turned up in the 1881 Census being treated for VD".

Not sure I follow this though.
