    Hi Normy

    Thanks, Normy. Yes indeed the photographs are familiar. The Victoria state government has a splendid site on The Extraordinary Tale of Frederick Bailey Deeming -- check it out if you are not familiar with it. He may not have been "Jack" but his story is in itself worth studying.

    Cheers

      Hi ChrisGeorge
      Thanks for the link, very interesting.

      He may not have been Jack, but with a description like:
      as being in his mid-30s, fair haired with a fair reddish beard and a large distinctive moustache.

      His facial hair may be decribed as 'Carroty' and with the sunshine of Australia and South Africa, he could have looked, well sunburnt or blotchy!

      Only codding!

      All the best

          Hi all
          I see on that web link it states:
          'In the end, all available evidence suggested Deeming was in Hull Gaol at the time of the Whitechapel murders.'

          I found this, but it indicates he was there in 1890
          http://www.prov.vic.gov.au/online-ex...6-HullGaol.htm

          While Casebook has:
          'However, the press, in search of a scapegoat for the murders, hastily threw suspicion on Deeming, neglecting the fact that he was in South Africa at the time of the murders.'

          Any more info on his jail terms?

          Cheers

            Deeming was in Hull Gaol for 9 months for passing dodgy cheques at Messrs Reynoldson's and Son, he was released in July 1891.

            The belief that Deeming was in prison in 1888 comes from the book Mass Murder, by L.C. Douthwaite, but he does not state where he was when he was serving.

            The belief that Deeming was in South Africa in 1888 in prison is erronous and based on some of the press reports of 1892 during the manhunt and trial of Deeming in Australia. The two lead detectives of the South African murder case visited Australia, and left their official testimonies, they stated that the man in Melbourne Gaol was not the man wanted in South Africa.
