Default Alice McKenzie's name

Hello all,

I found this, in an obscure newspaper from New Zealand, and do not believe it has been noticed before (he says, holding his breath!)


From Te Aroha News, 21 Aug 1889


Alice McKenzie..... also known as Alice Kell.

Please note. NOT Kelly. Kell. Although that makes me wonder too.

best wishes

Phil

Hi Phil
Thanks for pointing out the info:-)
There are also mentions in press reports of McKenzie using the name Kelly, which means that at least 4 of the victims (including C5 and non canonicals) are reputed to have used the name Kelly:
Tabram
Eddowes
Kelly herself and
McKenzie

Chris,
Indeed...
And I believe there were 270 odd Kelly's in London at the time?

Can we suggest a Kelly fixation? hahahaha!

No wonder they call it the Kelly directory.



best wishes

Phil

Hi Pat
I wondered if she was lying too.
There are a couple of other entries for Alice in the Whitechapel Infirmary and one for another workhouse. She kept being brought to the workhouse by police and interestingly was found drunk on Dorset St. once.
One entry looks like her husband's name was given as John but she's consistent with the carpenter/cabinet maker description of him.
I didn't manage to locate him at all.

I wasn't able to decipher what she in for in the first entry but you did a good job of it.

I didn't realise until very recently that people were sometimes taken to workhouses or Infirmaries to await being taken to the magistrate's court the next day after being arrested, rather than being kept in cells.

Admitted Aug 11th 1883 Whitechapel Infirmary admission and discharge register StBG/WL/123/16
Alice Mc Kenzie age 37 admitted from 36 F & D St (Flower and Dean) widow of Joseph, cabinet maker.
admitted with ulcerated sta??? CofE admitted 8pm settlement 3 weeks discharged 24.8.83



Admitted Mon Nov 5th 1883 Whitechapel Infirmary admission and discharge register StBG/WL/123/16

Hi Debra Thanks, I wonder if it may be Stomach? I think Chris said it might be Stomma but not sure how he spelt it....
Being an alcoholic she could well have an ulcerated stomach. I have been looking for Joseph or John Mckenzie too. No luck yet...
Pat..

Default Stoma

Stoma's likely. My uncle has Crohn's disease, stomas are a problem.

Are there any references to Alice Kell or Alice Kelly in the workhouse books I wonder...seeing as she may or may not have used that name on occasion?

Just wondering.
