  • Solomon De Leeuw

    Thread for discussing this local, a man who may fit the description of the suspect mentioned within the following thread at the end of this post.

    Casebook,particularly Chris Phillips, has discussed this character, to an obviously greater extent than the Forums has...we haven't discussed him at all, with the exception of Scott Nelson.
    Hopefully, as some of us continue to scour the newspapers, something else may materialize to shed more light as to whether De Leeuw is the individual mentioned in the following link we put up yesterday or the day before :

    You know that article on Sagar and the Bull Inn Yard? On the third page, if you look at the colour drawing looking out of the Yard through the archway to the street, you can see De Leeuw's (future) butcher shop. How perfect.

          I'm putting this article up in two places.

          Notice the names found in this report....S.DeLeeuw..Mc Carthy...Crossingham..Barnardo...Abrahams...Abberl ine

          Is this "S" De Leeuw the Solomon De Leeuw ?

            That's quite a roll call - McCarthy, Crossingham, Cooney, Arnold and Abberline.

                  Thanks How, I searched the surname which brought up quiet a lot of hits, so searched the full name and found this. I wonder what he was doing to the poor sheep?

                            I don't know what the "Life Governorship to Hospitals" entails, exactly, but is this not another reference to Solomon de Leeuw, the address being No. 59 Aldgate High Street...?

                            His name is in the 3rd line from the bottom, rendered as 'S. de Lelen.' ELO, December 1883.

                              It seems governors had the privilege of recommending patients for admission to hospital, and life-governorships were normally granted in return for a fee (20 guineas for the National Temperance Hospital at around this time - https://discovery.nationalarchives.g...6-ebe9cc6b4056 ).


                              I think that must be Solomon de Leeuw, though the earliest record I had of him at that address was five years later.
