The Jack the Ripper Conference: LIVERPOOL 2017 is proud to present -

CHRIS JONES

THE TRIAL OF FLORENCE MAYBRICK (1889)
&
THE DIARY OF JACK THE RIPPER: 25 YEARS OF MYSTERY

For seven days in August 1889, the eyes of the world were focused on the unfolding events of a sensational trial in Liverpool. A young American woman, Florence Maybrick, was on trial for the murder of her much older husband, James, a respected Liverpudlian cotton trader, whom she allegedly killed through arsenic poisoning. A key piece of evidence at the trial was a letter that Florence had written to her lover, another local cotton trader named Alfred Brierley. The dark secret that the letter exposed, seem to provide her with a motive for murder. However, as the trial progressed, more and more dark secrets began to emerge that also painted her husband in a sinister light. He was man who outwardlyappeared to be sociable, successful and widely respected, yet hidden below the surface, was a man who was privately difficult, intense, aggressive and addicted to a range of poisonous substances including arsenic and strychnine. He was also a serial adulterer and had a mistress in Liverpool. It was a case that shocked the Victorian mind-set and attracted the attention of the embryonic feminist movement who saw raw male hypocrisy at the heart of the case.

At the end of the trial, the jury took just thirty-five minutes to reach a guilty verdict and the judge sentenced Florence to be hanged. The verdict was greeted with anger in and outside the courtroom and soon the anger was to spread around the world, especially in America. The public outcry forced the Home Secretary to commute the sentence to one of life in prison. Three American Presidents became involved in the case and requested her release from jail. Florence served fifteen years in prison before being released (but never pardoned). She returned to America and after some years of fame and public speaking, she retired to a life of anonymity, living in relatively poverty in a simple wooden house in an isolated wood in Connecticut.

While the trial had a devastating personal impact upon Florence, it also led to fundamental changes within the British legal system. In 1898 an Act was passed that allowed, for the first time, a person accused of murder,to give evidence on oath at their trial. It was also one of the landmark cases that led to establishment of the Criminal Court of Appeal in Britain in 1907.

At this years official Jack the Ripper conference in Liverpool , Chris Jones will look at the background to the case, how James and Florence met and subsequently married, how and why the marriage started to disintegrate and the events leading up to James's death. He will examine key moments in the trial and why the jury produced a guilty verdict. He will also look at the reasons why the trial attracted such a global audience. Most importantly, he will address the big question, did Florence really kill James?!

Chris Jones will also be appearing alongside Shirley Harrison , Keith Skinner and James Johnston, as part of a very special public event to mark the 25th anniversary of the Diary of Jack the Ripper.




ABOUT CHRIS JONES

Chris Jones is a graduate in Modern History and Politics from Liverpool University and has taught for thirty-six years in secondary schools in Liverpool. He was for many years Head of History in a Merseyside school and later became Deputy Headteacher of one of the Liverpool's largest comprehensive schools. He is heavily involved in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award and is currently in the process of setting up his own outdoor walking company, Simply Trekking.

In 2007, Chris organised the Trial of James Maybrick, which was one of the main events in the city to mark Liverpool's 800th birthday and its status as European Capital of Culture. The trial took place in Liverpool Cricket Club, directly opposite Battlecrease House, home to the Maybricks, and where both James and Florence Maybrick were members. Following the success of the trial, Chris wrote the widely acclaimed book The Maybrick A to Z. In the book he tried to take an objective review of the evidence surrounding Florence's trial for James's murder in 1889 and also James's alleged links to the Ripper murders. He has continued his research into James and especially Florence, and has given talks on the Maybricks in both Britain and America, including in Mobile, Alabama, where Florence was born and to serving and retired police officers in New Scotland Yard, London. He has written several articles on the Maybrick case, his most recent one was a critique of the section of the recent book by Bruce Robinson, We all love Jack, in which he made some doubtful claims with regard to the conduct of Florence's trial.

Liverpool 2017 is shaping up to be one hot ticket in Ripperology. If you want to join us for the event of the year please buy book your place now at www.crimeconference.com

One of the best feelings in running these events is seeing the final list of speakers all together on the bill. Another superb mission accomplished.

It couldnt be done without the continued support from the field. Feeling very humbled.

Thanks guys.

Ricky

She didn't want to skip it, Scotty, but she already had her holidays booked and the dates clash.

She'll be with everyone in spirit.

Love,

Forgive the third person Caz. It's the easiest way for me to call you "Carrie Brown."
