Ancestry has the 1888 electoral rolls for London (including Whitechapel) and you can insert key word of the street address. Note not everyone could vote in the nineteenth century.

Thanks Paul - I'll check out Ancestry.
I thought it required you to put in a person's name, Will look again
Many thanks

It might require trial and error, but if you search by record type (census, electoral roll, London electoral roll prior to search) it should then give you something useable.

I've attached an example for Hanbury Street as a search term but you may need to adjust to get all you want

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 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.

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.

Francis Thompson, a modern suspect, is said to have lived 80 yards from Mary Kelly's home, at the Providence Row night refuge in Crispin Street, opposite Dorset Street.
