    Having just located my book of notes,he's in with Nicholls as deputy at 18 Thrawl Street.Unfortunately I haven't written what book I'd found that in.
    I personally have never found a reference to Timothy Donovan having anything to do with 18 Thrawl Street (Wilmott's Lodging House). I could be wrong of course!

    Although it was not unusual for people to own several lodging houses, being the day-to-day manager of one would probably have been enough.

    This Timothy Donovan died of consumption,if I remember correctly.

    Hi Anna

    Timothy Donovan was the Deputy keeper at Crossingham`s, 35 Dorset St.

    There were two "Crossingham" Lodging Houses in Dorset St. One was opposite Millers Court entrance,No. 17, and the other, 35 Dorset St, was on the same side as Millers Court but at the other end of the street.

    edit. Mike, sorry for the echo, we crossed posts!!

    Donovan was deputy at Crossingham's when Chapman was murdered and viewed her body. I think there isn't a connection with Kelly that I know of. There was also a Timothy Donovan who murdered his wife in about 1905 of Stepney.

    Cheers, Mike!!!

    The list is from my ongoing Ripper project, "The Whitechapel Murders Who`s Who".

    I don`t know the crim` from Millers Ct you mention, I`ll have to have a look back at Chris`s Old Bailey lists.

    John,

    Do you remember the name of the character from Miller's CT who lived there (possibly) at the time of Kelly's murder, and who had a criminal history? I just vaguely remember a guy like this, but I can't for the life of me remember any details. I think it came from something Chris posyed, maybe from the Old Bailey records.

    Cheers,

    Mike
