    Hi - I just found your forum searching for Dinham villa - I have something that might be of interest - my great uncle kept a railway crossing in lincolnshire and to practice his handwriting copied stuff out of the newspapers into a journal - included is this sketch of the house and where the bodies were found and a few other details...Click image for larger version.

    Hello Richard

    Thanks for alerting us about your great uncle's journal about Dinham Villa and Frederick Bailey Deeming. Although the sketches were not original to him but were copied from the newspaper they are still of interest, I think, and might be valuable to a collector. If you don't mind, I am going to let a Ripperologist who lives in Hull know about the journal. Might I ask, are you resident in Lincolnshire, as your great uncle was, or elsewhere?

    All the best

    Hi all

    On JTR Forums it appears that Howard Brown might have just posted the very newspaper article from which Richard Crooks' ancestor may have copied those images of the front elevation and plan of Dinham Villa. The article appeared in a supplement to the Manchester Courier, March 19, 1892.

    Best regards
