Default Whitechapel residents (1888 Electoral records)

I extracted the attached spreadsheet (in the zip file) of the 1,400 registered voters in the Spitalfields ward, Tower Hamlets borough from the 1888 electoral records.

It provides another view of who was living in the immediate area. However, I recognise registered voters were only a sub-set of the total population.

If the Ripper was a local (sol lived in the Spitalfields ward), and if was not poor / itinerant, then it's possible he may be one of these 1,400 people. I know these are major assumptions.

Is there anyway to find our more information on these people ? I started searching on some of these names in the 1891 Census but there were too many people who had the same name.

Not a single named suspect appears in this list. Like looking for a needle in a haystack. Nice try though.

It's perhaps the unnamed suspects we should be looking at.

Thank you, very interesting.

Lots of Jewish names.


The only ones you can easily find more info on are of course the ones with unusual names.

The first really odd name that stuck out to me was Septimus Swyer (nr. 80).

Lo and behold, he has actually been researched as a Ripper-person of interest!

http://forum.casebook.org/showthread.php?p=214514


Then there's Henry Pige Leschallas:
"Henry Pige-Leschallas was a successful businessman of Huguenot origin who lived during the 1880’s and 90’s with his wife and six children at Highams, a large country house at Sunningdale in Surrey. In 1874 he inherited the estate of his cousin John Leschallas. At the age of 63, in 1893, he bought Glenfinart, as a second home for use in the summer and as a shooting estate"
What's he doing in Brick Lane?

Lots of Musaphias - here's a whole page about that family, including lots of census info from Spitalfields http://www.tzorafolk.com/genealogy/history/musaphia.htm


Nr.665, Paul Cadosch - 27 Hanbury Street, would be Albert Cadosch's father.


nr. 669 - James Waker, "The first floor back room [of 29 Hanbury Street] was shared by a Mr. Waker, a maker of tennis boots, and his retarded adult son."
65 years old in 1888, according to Jon Guy


Nr. 1179, Charles Frost is Eddowes' brother-in-law.

Anyway, interesting to flip through

Craig,

When do you think the 1888 electorals would have been compiled?

Yep

Like the Pathologist,lecturer and kidney expert who lived next door to William Gull from the mid 1860s onward.

Gull was at 8 Finsbury Square,Sutton at 9.

Gull was an MD,Sutton an MB.

Anyone have WEG's letter to The Times concerning Jack the Ripper?

Hi MS, I think he is really listed at 16 Frying Pan Alley in that 1888 entry- 4099 Fashion Court being a mistake, perhaps because OCR was used to make the index?

Very interesting Debra - bearing in mind time lag I wonder at what stage of 1888 he lived at 16 Frying Pan Alley.
