'Brutal murder Quadring'
« on: Tuesday 01 March 11 05:00 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I wondered if anyone is planning a visit to the Lincolnshire Archives please? There's an article from the Lincoln Rutland and Stamford Mercury (dated 9th September 1842, page 3, column 2) about a murder in Quadring at that time. I found the information on the Archives website, it's on microfilm. I remember reading about a murder in Quadring in a library book years ago, and have recently been searching for more information. I think the murder I read about was of the village school mistress by a young lad she had been giving extra lessons to in her home. I would love to find out more about this story if possible. I have many ancestors from Quadring and have a keen interest in the village history.
If anyone is able to have a look for me I would be very grateful.
Many thanks in advance.

William HOWETT 26 appears to have been the murderer.

There are quite a few bits in the British Library Newspaper Database.  If you don't have access to that, PM your e-mail addrss to me and I will send you a few reports. :)

 Yrs 5 and 6 at Quadring village school covered this subject a couple of years ago as part of their research into Quadring's past.  They were fascinated.

William Howlett was tried at Spalding Court, found guilty and hanged there.   I don't know what happened to his remains.

Strange.   :-\  The week after the murder, the Coroner committed him to Lincoln Castle for trial at the next assizes.  I found nothing at all after that, nor anything in the death index. ???

Just a question, Did hanged murderers or any one hanged make it into the death index? Or were they completely struck off so to speak?
