  • Maybrick Book Launch & Conference, 10 & 11 September 2022

    Hi All,

    I am posting on behalf on author and researcher, Christopher Jones, who is launching his new book on the Maybricks and infamous, Jack the Ripper Diary. See below!


    MAYBRICK BOOK LAUNCH AND CONFERENCE - SATURDAY 10 & SUNDAY 11 SEPTEMBER 2022

    A Liverpool murder trial shocked Victorian Britain. Florence Maybrick was found guilty of killing her husband, James Maybrick, by poisoning him with arsenic. Florence was to spend 15 years in prison but did she really murder James? In 1992, a diary was found in which James supposedly confessed to committing the Ripper murders, but was James really Jack the Ripper? Using new material, the authors of a new book have provided definitive answers to both of these intriguing crime mysteries.

    VENUE: The Reading Room in Wellington Street, Garston, Liverpool, venue for the inquest into James’ death.


    SPEAKERS INCLUDE:
    • Christopher Jones (author of The Maybrick A to Z and co-author of the new book on the Maybrick case)
    • Adam Wood (Executive Editor of the Ripperologist magazine & true crime author)
    • Sue Parry (Commissioning Editor of the Journal of the Whitechapel Society and true crime writer)
    • James Johnston (Documentary filmmaker specialising in true crime)


    TICKETS 10
    Buffet lunch will available at an extra cost of 8
    Optional extra tours available on Saturday
    Due to limits on numbers at conference and optional tours, all activities and buffet lunch must be booked in advance

    On Saturday 10th September

    Optional morning tour of St George’s Hall, venue for Florence’s trial with official Hall guide (costs 10)
    Optional afternoon coach tour of the Maybrick sites of south Liverpool, finishing with drinks in the gardens of what was Battlecrease House (costs 10 – all proceeds to charity).

    The event will also include a panel discussion with the speakers.

    For convenience, I have attached the booking form to this post. For further information, please contact Chris directly: christopher.j.m.jones@googlemail.com


    All best, James J

    Now you're looking for the secret, but you won't find it, because of course, you're not really looking. You want to be fooled.

    Yes, thanks. Seeing that it is a Maybrick Conference, I think I'll take a hard pass on the beef broth.

    Ike, Old Boy--if you don't mind saying--will you be attending this big reveal?

      Just out of curiosity does anyone know what the book is called as there’s nothing online about it?

          I don't know the title, but when he last spoke at the WS88 it was described as "the definitive account of Florence's trial, James' links to Jack the Ripper, and his ( Chris') aim is to provide an objective, balanced and complete account of the story, with a mass of new material."

              Sounds interesting. Those of you who attend will have to review it for us in distant places.

                I notice that the flier for the book launch reads:

                "In 1992, a diary was found...

                Whether this is a tease or a spoiler I wouldn't know. Tempus omnia revelet.

                  I'm thinking about going under an assumed name, RJ, just for jolly. But will it be just too obvious which of the Maybrickians I am?

                  PS Good gag about the beef broth, by the way ...

                  PPS Has anyone else - like me - ever noticed how the words '
                  assumed name' sound like 'pseudonym' when spoken in a broad Geordie accent ['sumednyem']?

                    More of a howler than a tease or a spoiler, I would think, given Chris Jones's belief that the diary was anything but 'found'.

                      My understanding is that Chris is very much a believer in the fact the diary is a hoax, but you knew that already though RJ.

                      I have a copy of his original Maybrick A-Z and felt it was a really good research tool.

                      I await the masses of new evidence he has which he believes kills this whole thing stone dead. I could do with a new subject to focus, on because until I get the truth I don’t think I can let go of this one.

                      Maybe he has the answers.

                      Maybe not.

                        I thought you had the truth already, Jay. You know, Maybrick was the Ripper, Maybrick wrote the Diary.

                          Hi Scotty,

                          I think you may be mixing ero up with the Ikester.

                          Even then, I'm not sure either has claimed that to be the truth - as in a definitely ascertained fact.

                          They tend to leave that to those who claim it to be a fact that the Barretts chose Maybrick to be the ripper and wrote the diary.

                          I'd be very surprised, however, if Chris Jones will be identifying his hoaxer(s) in the latest book on Maybrick.

                          Love,

                          Caz

                            Yes, the hoaxbusters - like the Dambusters - leave no room for error in their calculations, whereas I am 95-99.99% certain (depending on what day it is) that the Victorian scrapbook has James Maybrick's paws all over it. Ero b is a fish unto himself and he focuses on the watch as the most damning evidence of Maybrick's guilt and is willing to see the scrapbook as a device to support the watch (therefore possibly kosher or possibly unkosher).

                            I'm looking forward to what Chris has to say on the subject of Maybrick's guilt or innocence, and I may not be able to stop myself - I may need to leap to my feet and reveal myself by shouting out that his new book "is a fraud, a cheap fraud, and the author was probably schooled in 1960s Liverpool, et cetera!".

                            All in a day's work for Ike's idea of fun ...

                              Sorry Caz, and sorry for the misunderstanding, Erobitha. I thought you believed the Diary was Maybrick's.
