The Victims In 1888, 6-7 women were considered to be victims of JTR. Were there more...or were there less?

Thanks very much for these articles Rob.
This Thomas Brown ( no relation) is a piece of work.
I've read something along the lines of this...the mention of electricity rang a bell...not sure if it was Brown.

He would have been 23 during the AOT.

Mary Ann's parents were married at St. Dunstan's, Stepney on June 7th, 1868. At the time they were both living at 70, Globe Road. Her mother was Elizabeth Naomi (nee) Young.

On the marriage cert Elizabeth's father, John, is described as a chemist, but on her baptism record he is a labourer.

By 1871, the family were living at 30, Lawrence Street, Chelsea. They were still at that address when Mary Ann was christened at St Luke's Chelsea (CofE) on July 18th, 1876. She had been born on December 28th, 1873.

Together with Rob's find of an 'Emily' Mealey living in Shoreditch in 1891, this suggests Mary Ann may have had a connection to the East End before she married William Austin.

Has anyone ever come across a copy of Tom Divall's memoirs Scoundrels and Scallywags (and some Honest Men)?

I'm curious to know if he mentions the Austin case.

I believe that as a young PC Fred Wensley was one of the first officers to call at 35, Dorset Street after the murder, but he doesn't mention it in his book.

I have a copy and he doesn't. I specifically bought the book to see if he mentions the case. As far as I am aware it's not mentioned in any policeman's memoirs.

Thanks, Rob. That's a pity.

Does he mention Billy Maher/Meers/Myers at all?

Not that I can tell. The books not indexed which doesn't help and I have had a look through and can see no mention of him.

Thanks, Rob.

Ben Leeson devotes a few pages to him (as Billy Meers) and says a whole book could have been written about his exploits. According to Leeson his name came up on a daily basis at Leman Street.
