I get easily confused on family relationships.

I was thinking more of locations than names. MJK living at Pennington Street/ Breezers Hill, Maywood lived close, Morgensterns with Belgian connexions in the same vicinity. I may have times and people messed up. Even before we knew as much as we do now I tried to find Mary in old smuggling cases, etc. The description of her trip to France seemed less like prostitution than something else, perhaps being the companion ("wife") of a "gentleman" who was doing something illegal.

One of the other fires involved hay and hay improperly stored can have spontaneous combustion.
I agree, my thinking is that the barns were almost empty before the fires, just enough left in them to look as if they were full.

Default Thomas Darkins

Wagner was Gertie's maiden name. She married a horse-dealer named Thomas Darkins in 1900. In March, 1902 Darkins (Darkens) was convicted of horse theft at the Old Bailey and sentenced to 3 years imprisonment. That seems to be about the time that Stephen Maywood hooked up with her.

As Thomas Smith, Darkins had been jailed for 12 months in 1893 on two counts of horse theft.

And he, it would seem, was the Ginger Tom who paid a visit to Sarah Maywood, much to Stephen's displeasure. There's a great photo of him in his boater on Ancestry.

These are 'the stones' at the Caledonian Market where Ginger Tom, and no doubt Maywood, bought and sold horses with 'no questions asked'.

They were a short distance from Harrison Barber's head office in Belle Isle and they were the same stones where the blind beggar sold his matches.

Looks like the horses dragged Bill away. He wasn't there.
