Didn't know that, Jon. It's good to know, though

How many people would have known about the name and address on the pawn ticket? How many would have known the name she used at Bishopsgate? This isn't some charted course she used to misrepresent her identity, it seems rather a rather revealing spur of the moment choice when looked at forensically.
If anyone wants to look,you will find a Mary Ann Kelly baptised at St. Leonard's Church.
Possibly the same unfortunate in the 1881 census.
Ever wonder why her inquest was held at the Shoreditch Town Hall,which was the meeting place for St. Leonard's Vestry Board!

Eddowes was dropping hints left,right and centre.

Yes, when Sarah Smith, wife of the manager of the baths, was called out by the police, she went into Castle Alley and recognised McKenzie as someone who used the baths to wash people clothes (on a Saturday - so Alice must have been cleaning for Jewish people) and was known as Kelly.

Would that be Catherine Eddowes from Wolverhampton, twenty-ish years older than Mary Kelly, who'd had one steady relationship and was in another, who doesn't ever appear to have lived in Dorset Street at the time, and who had been away in Kent for most of the Autumn of Terror?

Hi Sam,

Although I like the tendency you seem to have, seeing coincidence where others see conspiracies, I think when you are dealing with a coincidence of this kind,.....a victim in a world event category alleged series of murders who uses aliases that are variations of the name and address of the subsequent victim...no matter how many Marys, or Mary Janes, or Mary Jane Kellys, or just Kellys there were in London at the same time, this is either an extremely poignant and very eerie coincidence, or it isnt a coincidence.

Since I take the approach that when looking at extraordinary things like Unicorns.......like a "coincidence" of this kid would be.... one doesn't just assume they are Horses anyway, I am less inclined to brush this off.

Its also why I just see a horse when I look at the Stride murder.

Yep.
Probably the same woman who was in London Hospital from December 1867 with a Mary Anne N_____,with Rheumatic Fever.
Glomenulonephritis AKA Gull-Sutton Syndrome or Bright's Disease is caused by the same bacteria.
Makes its' home in the intestines.

Oddly Eddowes left to go hopping and shortly after her new next door neighbour, Nichols, was dead.
When Eddowes returned she thought she knew who killed her and seemed to think that could be financially rewarding.

Stride's bottom lip is a genetic condition that was a specialty of HG Sutton's.

So was TB.Jack tried to take Chapman's head off.

Those four could have met in the London Hospital waiting hall.
