  • Henry Homewood Crawford. Freemason?

    Hi,

    1.Does anyone know if Henry Homewood Crawrord was a freemason?

    2. If so, can anyone supply any info re this eg Lodges etc?

    I've recently found a link between one of my POIs and HHC and am just trying to develop it a bit...

    Thanks and regards,

    Martyn

    Hi Martyn

    If I'm understanding the records correctly, he was in the Alliance Lodge in 1888 but resigned the following year. Later he seems to have joined a different lodge.

      Hi Robert. Thanks for that. I think Alliance Lodge rings a bell with me regarding someone else I've looked at, so I'll
      have to check that out.

      I've used Ancestry UK to research Freemasonry links but I don't currently have a sub, which is why I thought
      I'll ask on here.

      Cheers,

      Martyn

                Hi,

                I have a fairly primitive understanding of the workings of the Victorian coroner's court and wonder if anyone can help me with understanding Eddowes inquest in terms of HHC role in it.

                The records seem to suggest, to me at least, that HHC played a greater part in Eddowe's inquest than other police did in the inquests of Nichols, Chapman and Stride.

                Is this because the records are missing, incomplete, related press reports didn't fully include details etc. Did
                HHC really have more an active role in the inquest proceedings or perhaps not?

                Other questions:
                Why did HHC represent the City police and not somebody else? What might be the selection criteria...

                Is there any record of HHC representing the City police at any earlier inquests?

                Any thoughts or observations about HHC's Eddowes inquest appearance?

                (Robert kindly provided me with some FM info at my request. Listed within were 2 people who
                I've come across previously and I'm a little curious about HHC and I'm "just trying to see what I can see...").

                Any help appreciated,

                Martyn

                  Another question occured to me:

                  Did HHC represent the City Police at any subsequent inquests or was the Eddowes inquest a one-off or the last one anyway?

                    "If not quite in the exalted league of Sir Charles Warren, Bro Henry Homewood Crawford was nevertheless well situated in the Masonic hierarchy. Founder of the Guildhall Lodge (3116), Past Master in Grand Master's Lodge (No.1) and elevated into the Royal Arch in the same Chapter, in the spring of 1889 Crawford was appointed Grand Steward of the United Grand Lodge, and found himself among some distinguished company (elected as Grand Steward on the same day Michael Maybrick was elected Grand Organist).
