Hi Phil
Hibbert of Kelly and Mylett was the Hebbert of Westminster Hopsital. Charles Alfred.
Also, in the same vein- McKenna and McKellar of Mylett and MCKenzie and chief medical officer were the same man.

The press weren't overly fussed about how names were spelt.

Oh I agree.

I've Ben searching for an ancestor's arrival in Aus. been looking for years.

May have found him, just in sme spots the nam is spelt with a t others with a d.

If jus the press had bothered to confirm the spelling.

Then you look at all the names in the JtR case that are reported wrong.

Yes, all very frustrating GUT. I suppose there were more regional and education level preferences for spelling accepted in those days and less formal rules?
It's good to keep that in mind though; People often try to identify one particular person on a census or document by the way he only has 't' or 'm' in his name compared to someone else with a double 't' or 'm' spelling but it rarely works that simply, does it.

Not that simple at all in my experience.

Hi Debs,

yes..I was aware if these. I referenced the Evans/Skinner encyclopedia and looked in the back of the Ultimate to see the different spellings and listed them as such. As they were there.

Hi Phil
Well my post wasn't for your benefit then but for the benefit of those people who might not realise Drs Hibbert and Hebbert were the same man (with variant spellings) and McKenna and McKellar were the same man but someone got his name completely wrong in the press and also that he was chief medical officer. This information wasn't indicated in your 'list of all doctors' and I thought it might be useful, even helpful, for someone to know this.

Hi Phil

In addition to sorting out who was who among doctors with some type of connection to the case during the murders you might also include medical students, who, while not fully qualified, were a major theme in the press coverage of the case as persons of interest in the investigation. One such medical student was the insane medical student John William Smith Sanders although it seems he was safely housed in an asylum at the time of the crime spree. Similarly, although not mentioned at the time of the Whitechapel murders, D. G. [Dennis Gratwick] Halstead described in his memoirs, Doctor in the Nineties, about being viewed with suspicion by the inhabitants of the East End for carrying a black bag; my research shows that Halstead was not a fully qualified doctor at the time of the murders but rather a medical resident at the London Hospital training to be a fully fledged physician. See http://www.casebook.org/ripper_media/rps.halsted.html.

Cheers

Chris
