    It was years ago, Robert, but my thanks as ever, for showing that we talk about very powerful people here indeed!

    • Forget Cutbush. Let's go back to talk of bacon, sausages, and deep fryers. This Okie boy's loving this thread. Even if someone saying 'you agree with Tom' is considered a libelous insult. I'm ready for some fried bread. You can leave the 'black pudding'. That's a little too British for me. What is it, blood? No thanks.

      Yours truly,

      Tom Wescott

      • THC's great grandfather's full and official title:

        '‘ His Majesty's Justice of Oyer and Terminer of the City of London, and Justices of Gaol Delivery of Newgate, holden for the said City and County of Middlesex.'

        • THC is black pudding and blood, Tom.

          • From 2004 Debs, when you liked Australia:

            '>>I found an original Lease agreement dated 1839 at a Collectables Fair in
            Brisbane, Queensland today. The lease was for Nos 63 and 64 Whitechapel
            Road and dated 1839. Names mentioned are:

            Henry MITCHELL a Tallow Chandler and Tallow Melter of Whitechapel Rd, Luke
            Thomas FLOOD of Belle One Lodge, Chelsea and his deceased father Luke FLOOD,
            Alan PARSON Esq, and Josiah TAYLOR and his wife Mary ANN TAYLOR <<<

            I don't know if a Josiah Taylor has come up in any of your Taylor research AP, I couldn't find anything else on him.
            Thanks very much for the census information Robert, I will sort out the rest of the information I have and try to post it after the weekend.
            Debra'

              But we need new black pudding and blood. This is all old and tired stuff from years back. Research moves on.

                • Hi AP

                  As ever, I am ready to do anything reasonably possible to advance our knowledge of THC. But I myself confess to having reached a brick wall. Where next to look? I feel there is more info out there, but where? I don't know how Debs feels about this.

                  • I have to say that the only 'research' I have marked on this particular subject, THC, that I have noticed in the years of my solitude, is the bunch of modern monkeys who jumped on THC as soon as the Broadmoor files were published on him, and that many of them were my biggest critics over ten years ago when I was attempting to explain the unreasonable confinement of Thomas - and that my thoughts on Thomas were published when these monkeys were still in nappies and sucking on a dummy -

                      Again, I'm with you Robert.
                      Family research is not leading anywhere-we can kid ourselves secret illegitimacy is the answer but I feel that's a total cop out to paper over a huge crack without having to explain too much.
                      Maybe we should scrutinise Macnaghten and his motives? -Although Jonathon H is very busy travelling that route. The Sun?

                        Was it really unreasonable though? He was identified by women as someone who'd stabbed them-he was too insane to offer a plea- they put him in Broadmoor until a time when he either became sane enough to be able to understand and offer a plea and go on trial for the crimes or he became totally and hopelessly insane. Unfortunately for Thomas it was the latter event.

                        • Debs, I'm not going to argue about the wisdom of confining Thomas, for he was an absolute lunatic, but I would argue the legal process of his confinement, and sentencing, at length.

                              Paul Begg never took credit for anything anyone else researched or found in regard to Cutbush.

                              If someone was to claim the same about you nicking material, trust me, I'd be requiring that person to do the same thing as I did with you.
                              I watched the clips when they were first posted and all Paul Begg and Richard Jones do is attempt to take the viewer along to experience looking at the Broadmoor files on Cutbush for the very first time.
