  • Jack Sievey

    Has anyone ever done any research on the man Annie lived with after she came to London? It seems odd to me that he would have just decided to up and move to Notting Hill from Whitechapel unless his had family there. I've had a look on the censuses and haven't been able to uncover anything substantial - however, I'm assuming his surname was Sievey or Siffey, and it may not have been.

    My theory is that if Sievey was from Notting Hill, or the area around west London where Annie's family lived, she may have met him before she ended up in Whitechapel and as fellow alcoholics, they may have gravitated there together.

    Hi Hallie

    I'm not aware of any research on Sievey. I think the consensus is that he was called Sievey simply because he made sieves.
