    There is a connection between freemasons Henry Homewood Crawford and Thomas Catling (both connected to the Mitre Square murder).

    HHC was the son-in-law of Sir Francis Wyatt Truscott.

    FWT and TC were both founding members of the Savage Lodge Club...

    Thanks, DJA. I'll put some census data up on HHC soon.

    I also noticed a Brickwood (couldn't make out the first name), occupation "Brewer", in the Grand Masters Lodge No. 1. A relative of Edwin Brickwood of 9 KBW?. I found the FG Brown connection interesting.

    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
    "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). "- Bruce Robinson They All Love Jack pgs 203-204.

    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?

    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
