I think you're right, 1882 rings a bell (if you'll excuse the boxing pun). Wasn't he arrested but released as his good character was vouched for by a policeman - I'm thinking Thicke, but can't remember for sure.

So clearly Maxwell was talking about Barnett .
There is no sense in trying to push an idea that she mixed up Prater with Kelly .
Prater and Maxwell would have been sat together waiting to give testimony .
There's no evidence that Prater was called Mary Jane ....
Prater was not from limerick

I don't think it's probable that Maxwell confused Prater with Mary, but I think it's possible Lewis did. But there is something about her evidence that smacks of filling in the blanks after the fact, to me.
Believing Mary was from Limerick is irrelevant, it's doubtful that she would have had an Irish accent, growing up in Wales as she did.
And believing the man she lived with was called Joe Barnett isn't the same as knowing him before the murder (although she does say just that according to her inquest deposition).

Her police statement also contradicts the part you posted about her not knowing they had split up, and itself;

"since Joe Barnett left her she has obtained her living as an unfortunate. I was on speaking terms with her although I had not seen her for 3 weeks until Friday morning"

So, apparently, she *did* know they had split up, although last time they spoke this hadn't yet happened.
