I have started a separate thread with details of Mary Cluley, a prostitute living in Millers Court very shortly after the Kelly murder.
Below are details of two other Millers Court residents in the Infirmary shortly after Kelly's death. The surname of the first is hard to decipher and any alternative readings would be welcome. (see images below)

Millers Court

Thomas Gauven?
Aged 22
6 Millers Court
Single
Shoeblack

According to the register of deaths for 1889, the name of the Millers Court resident is Thomas Gavven:

The only Thomas whose name in the census is a feasible variant of GAVVEN and whose age is compatible came from Wolverhampton and was of Iirsh parentage.
His name is listed in the 1881 census as Thomas GARVEN and the family is listed as follows:
1st House Court, Southampton Street, Wolverhampton, Staffs
Head: Michael Gavern aged 66 born County Mayo (Ireland) - Blind 24 years.
Wife: Catherine Gavern aged 50 born County Mayo - Nail cutter
Children:
Catherine aged 20 - Nail cutter
Michael aged 18 - Iron plate worker
Thomas aged 13 - Iron plater worker
Joseph aged 11
Anna Jane aged 5
All children born in Wolverhampton
The family in 1861 is listed as follows:
No 1 Court, Southampton Street, Wolverhampton
Head: Michael Gavern aged 34 born Ireland - Stone Mind Labourer - Blind
Wife: Catherine Gavern aged 29 born Ireland - Charwoman
Children:
Ellen aged 5
Mary aged 3
Catherine aged 10 months
All born in Wolverhampton
Mother in Law:
Mary Ward aged 50 born Ireland
Brothers in Law:
Thomas Ward aged 22 born Ireland - Bricklayer's labourer
Patrick Ward aged 16 born Ireland - Iron Brazier apprentice.
I have yet to find them in 1861

Chris,

There's a Thomas GAWEN, a carman born in 1865/66, in the 1881 Census. His widowed mother, Catherine, was born in Persia (Iraq) and his elder brother, Charles, in Baghdad. Thomas was born in St Pancras, and the family were still resident there in 1881.

My guess would be Hanslope (or perhaps Hamslope), from the village of that name in Buckinghamshire.

My guess would be HanslopeI'd agree, Chris - there's a "lope" or maybe a "cope" in there somewhere.

It might be a clerical error, in that the first five letters of the surname might be construed as "Henry...". A bit like Charlie's Angels' "Boswell John Boswell", perhaps, here we may have had "Name?" - "Henry, Henry Cope" (or something similar), coming out as "Henry Henrycope".

Hi Guys
many thanks for the reading - it has led somewhere!
I have found what I think is the right man in the 1871 census under the surname Hanslope. If this is him, and he was living in Millers Court in 1889 he had certainly come down in the world.
1871:
3 Beaumont Street, Cavendish Square
Head: Henry Hanslope aged 22 born Lavenham, Suffolk - Commercial Traveller (Books)
Wife: Sarah A Hanslope aged 30 born Clingor, Middlesex
Son: John H aged 4 months

It looks as though he's the same one married in Islington in the last quarter of 1869, as there's a Sarah Ann Mason with a matching reference.

Certainly he'd come down in the world by 1901, when he was a shepherd in Boxford, West Suffolk!

Very interesting. I must say this kind of thing is a welcome antidote to the endless back-biting that sometimes makes me despair of Internet forums.

On the other hand, at this rate I can see poor Henry being a fully fledged suspect by the end of the day ...

...funny you should say that Chris!....Nah, he's interesting though.
Here's another, he may have been the guy inpersonating a detective at music halls, age and location fit. This is from the Liverpool mercury June 19 1871.
There is also another article from 1868 mentioning a respectable young man named Henry Hanslope from Lavenham, who attacked his mother.

Going by the BMD and census details Chris S. has posted on Henry Hanslope, I think this probably is the same man that attacked his mother in 1868.
This man's father John, a farmer, died died 17th Feb 1862 aged 47, at Lavenham and his mother Anne (who he seems to have helped out on the farm before his marriage and after the death of his father, going by some news reports on various thefts in Lavenham) died 6th Oct 1888 aged 67 years, in Lavenham.
His sister Mary Ann married married Charles Rocock, draper of Lavenham. on 16 sept 1873. These are from various BMD sections in the papers.

Wife: Sarah A Hanslope aged 30 born Clingor, Middlesex

On inspection, "Clingor" looks like it might have been "Islington" - the census return and/or the scan is defective at this point. John H was born there too.

Was Henry a bigamist too? He seems to have married Eliza in 1897 - yet Sarah appears to have died in 1907. Divorces weren't so common in those days.

I told you guys it was a domestic!

Interesting that the beak giving him the sentence for abusing his wife was 'Mr Lushington'. Given that was common slang for a drunkard at the time. My bet is that the journalist didn't get the beak's name and it was a common practice and in-joke to substitute another. This was still going on as recently as the 60s and 70s. A journalist pal of mine, when a junior reporter on a paper in Montreal, used the name 'Xavier L'Esperance' as this kind of catch-all when he covered family court, flower shows, local fires etc etc. It was commonly done by all the journalists in the newsroom...

Nice thought, Chava, but this was no nickname. Sir Franklin Lushington (1823-1901) was the Chief Police Magistrate for London, a Fellow of Trinity College Cambridge, and close friend of poet Edward Lear. In fact, Lear was in love with Lushington, but his hopes were dashed when the latter did not reciprocate. Lear was heartbroken by the rejection, and never quite got over it, apparently.

There was a young poet named Lear
Who one day came over all queer
He soon took to crushing on
His friend, Franklin Lushington,
Who spurned his advances - oh dear!

It looks as though henry's second marriage was legal
Although his first wife, Sarah Ann, lived until 1907 and her death was registered under the name of Hanslope, there is a record of Henry remarrying to his second wife, Eliza.
1897 Quarter 1
Cosford, Suffolk
Henry Hanslope married Eliza Richardson

Thomas Gavven
Died Feb 1889 aged 22
Born circa 1866 or 1867
I had been unable to find any other occurrence of the surname GAVVEN but there is one birth record, albeit female, as follows:
1866 Quarter 2
Meriden
Louisa Gavven
6d 370
This entry does not appear under its proper spelling in the searchable index - it would be very easy to mistake it for GAWEN but in this case it is definitely GAVVEN
Meriden is small town a few miles to the east of Birmingham
This may given a location for the family

I'm not so sure, Chris. There are many names like "Gawen" - it probably derives from "Gawain" at some point - like Major "Gowen", from Fawlty Towers, for example. Then there's "Gowan" (my uncle's surname), as another. Offhand, I can't think of any British surname with "VV" in the middle. I'm pretty certain that "GAVVEN" can be attributed to a mis-read, and that "Gawen" is the more likely version of the name.

Hi Sam
I take your point but all I meant was that in the case of Thomas and Louisa the surname is recorded in the official index as GAVVEN. If you compare the Louisa entry above with the surname of the entry below, which starts with GAW, the difference is clear.

Chris

The Louisa Gavven (b.1886q2), whose birth entry is posted above, seems likely to be the same person as the Louisa Gavin whose death is recorded in 1873q2. Both birth and death are recorded in Meriden.

On the basis that spelling in Victorian times was an inexact science, I would contend that the following Thomas Gevan, who appears in the 1881 census, might prove to be our man. Shout me down if you think not...

111 Hospital Street, Birmingham, Warwickshire -
George Gevan, head, married, 38, bootmaker, b. Birmingham, Warwickshire
Selina Gevan, wife, married, 34, b. Wolverhampton, Warwickshire
Thomas Gevan, son, 13, bootmaker, b. Birmingham, Warwickshire
Rosina [?] Smith, mother-in-law, widow, 64, assistant, b. Birmingham, Warwickshire
William Gevan, son, 7, scholar, b. Birmingham, Warwickshire
Elizabeth Whelan, servant, widow, 43, general servant, b. Birmingham, Warwickshire

For reasons I am not at liberty to disclose, I recently found out that early divorce records in the National Archives (J 77) are now included in the online catalogue. These go at least as far as 1897, but a search under Hanslope doesn't bring anything up.

Incidentally, I think the jury's very much out on the legality of Henry Hanslope's second marriage; although common sense would suggest that you wouldn't go back to your home patch (I suspect that Lavenham and Cosford are not very far apart) to get married unless it was all above board, for fear of getting the rumour mill going. Bigamous marriages are, surely, better entered into in places where people don't know of you or your antecedents.

In the 1891 census, 51-year-old Sarah Ann Hanslope, Henry's first wife, is, for reasons which are not clear, listed as the "daughter" of the 38-year-old head of her household, a Mr William Andrews. In fact, she was actually in domestic service - and her husband had almost certainly split from her by then. By extension, Sarah Ann's daughter by Henry, Ellen Emily (b.1872q1, Islington), who is still living with Sarah Ann, is recorded entirely erroneously as the "granddaughter" of William Andrews. She is also mistakenly given the name Eleanor.

From the 1891 census, then (I am leaving out the extensive Andrews family to whom Sarah Ann is in service):

16, Hooks Road, Peckham, London -
Sarah Hanslope, daughter [sic], married, 51, general servant, b. Holloway, London
Eleanor Hanslope, granddaughter, single, 19, b. Holloway, London

Sir Franklin Lushington (1823-1901) was the Chief Police Magistrate for London, a Fellow of Trinity College Cambridge ...

Not to go off track, but Ripper "suspect" James Kenneth Stephen had a younger brother by the name of Harry Lushington Stephen. Their father, James Fitzjames Stephen, like Sir Franklin Lushington, had attended Trinity College, Cambridge; and both James Fitzjames Stephen and Franklin Lushington had served as president of the Cambridge Apostles. It seems likely that Harry Lushington Stephen was named after the magistrate, who later reciprocated by naming one of his own sons George Henry Fitzjames Lushington.

I'm not sure whether she did or not, but given that it was McCarthy - not Barnett - who stated that Kelly received occasional letters from her "mother" in Ireland, it would seem that the landlord received at least some mail on behalf of his lodgers.

That is what is bothering me Sam. If Kellys mother was writing to her, then can we assume that her mother would use Kellys real name on the envelope? And if McCarthy recieved her mail, then wouldnt it follow that he would have known that name?

No mention of any letters being found in Kellys room? McCarthy never mentions that Mary Jane Kelly was not her real name, nor does Barnett. Sorry for derailing the thread a little, but I just thought mailing addresses could be important and that you are the folks that would know

In my previous post the date of death of Anne Hanslope should read 6 October 1888, not 6 September

It seems the name was cursed - the full name of Mary Pearcey's infant victim was Phoebe Hanslope Hogg.


Sam, a bit of trivia for you;
The two families were actually related as far as I can tell!....how, I haven't had the stamina to work out, but...

Henry (of Miller's Court) Hanslope's father was named John Hanslope b Suffolk c 1815 to Joseph and Ann Hanslope, he also had a sister named Maria Hanslope b 1817 in Thurston Suffolk.
A Maria Hanslope b Thurston Suffolk c 1820 married James Hogg in 1839 and their son Frank S Hogg b c 1859 was the husband of Phoebe Hogg and father of the infant Phoebe Hanslope Hogg.


Thanks for the Bashman hint Chris, I will look closer at that.

Regarding the death of Henry Hanslope, could he be the Henry Hanslope aged 67 who died March qtr 1909 in West Derby? I notice a shift in the BMD's to West Derby/Liverpool after 1901, quite a few births and deaths where there once were none.
Also there is a L/CPL John Hanslope who was b in St Pancras who died in the Great War 7 June 1917 aged 23, he enlisted in Lancaster and had a brother G Hanslope living at 5 Duncan street Liverpool. I'm not sure but could he be the John Hanslope, son of Henry and Elizabeth?

I was going through some South Grove records today and came across the surname RASHMAN - that might be worth a try as well

As a follow-up to that, I note that the Sourcebook records Mrs Prater giving her address as 27 Dorset Street on her Police statement. Unless this was an error, it perhaps indicates that she may have used McCarthy's address for "official" purposes.

(PS, Dan: thanks for resurrecting this!)

Bill Ignored indicates that although a Bill of Indictment had been issued but it was for the wrong reasons as the Bill did not reflect the evidence being advanced. For example where someone is accused of armed robbery, but the evidence being put forward suggests that the crime was one of assault. Therefore the Bill had been issued for armed robbery and was no basis for a conviction of assault. The Bill would therefore have been ignored

Thanks Debs, Chris and all. Both men are interesting. Hanslope for obvious reasons, Gavven because he died.

Roy
