I didn't really want to create a new thread just for this, so thought I'd just ask here:
What of Henry Tompkins the horse slaughterer? I know there was some slight suspicion about his movements on the night of Nichols' murder, but was there any further suspicion about him? Or was he sufficiently cleared?
I always found his comment about not liking women to be a little odd, not that that would incriminate him! but you get what I mean.
Does anyone have a list of who lived in the zone where the Ripper killings occurred ? Paul's shown how to get this information from the 1888 Electoral records on Ancestry.com.
I understand it's a list of those registered to vote - which is only a sub-set of total population in the area.
It would take a long time to search by street. I'm hoping someone may have done this already.
Any suggestions ?
I would hazard that this would be nigh on impossible, when you consider that lots of people wouldn't appear on the roll, then when you throw into the mi misspelling of foreign names and already your going to experience problems complying your list.
