If I was related to Hans Christian Anderson I might be better at spinning fairy stories!! ;D ;D ;D

As regards the murderer - if he was pretty far back in my tree I would probably admit to him - if fairly recent - no way!  ::)

Cheers

Hi Graceland,

I think I have a murderer in my tree,  he has the surname,  an unusual one,  and is in the right vicinity,  but I am yet to positively link him into my tree,  to be honest I have not tried all that hard either.  :-\

Well, I recently discovered why a 2x gt uncle was in Pentonville in 1901: he assaulted a police officer who tried to arrest him for allegedly stealing a pony and cart.  Apparently uncle head-butted the unfortunate policeman, then after a struggle, tripped him up and held him to the ground with his knee.  "He seized him by the throat with one hand and with the other seized him in a dangerous place."   :o

On the other side of the family is the conman who tried to claim he was the heir to a baronetcy.  Big court case in 1853.  His undoing was a clever policeman and a jeweller in London reading the reports of the case and coming forward to give evidence.  He might be a cousin of some degree.

I think the description here needs to be infamous!!

Hi everyone,

We don't have anyone in our family tree that was famous for committing a crime, (well not that I have found yet) but we have someone that was probably famous for a couple week for being murdered.   The reason that she might have been famous is that she was murdered for being a witch.  Stabbed with a pitchfork in 1875.  Witches we know to frequent the area since at least the Tudor times and probably long before that so it is written.

My daughter and I have fun telling everyone that we have a witch in the family.  Of course we have the documents to prove all of this.

Regards Jacquie.
