As it did not give an age I dont know if he is connected to the lad of the same name who was sentenced in 1866 aged 17 at the Old Bailey for raping a Martha Hunt. He was let off death penalty due to his age and given 5 years.

See below......Pat
Well the Hoxton chap is certainly not the Walter of "Secret Life" as he would have been dead already.

The book was a real eye opener into the life of the "mary ann" (male prostitutes) of the day. There is a lot of intertwining between the Whitechapel Murders and the Cleveland Street Scandal in regard to familiar names.
You're welcome, Jerryd. It is interesting that "The Alienist" was concerned about murders of boy prostitutes in 1890s New York, and that the current drama series is following the book closely in that regard.
I may look into the book about Saul. It is definitely an under-researched area of the Victorian era.

For years I have tried to find if it was indeed Eddowes son but to no avail as of yet. My search goes on.
That is really interesting! Let us know if you do get the proof of a connection.
