Calendar Comments – January 18th

My family history events for January 18th include:

1950: Death of Lily Evelyn Crackett (née Lily Evelyn Allison) at Barrington in Northumberland. Actual date of death is a little Snip Lilyuncertain as this was a curious case of manslaughter. Lily was killed by her husband David Robert Sinclair Crackett. If you would like to know more about this tragic tale then you can read about the “Murder at Barrington“. She was last seen alive in November 1949, but her death certificate states body found 18th January 1950. The court returned a verdict of manslaughter, not murder.

1789: 227 years ago today was the baptism of my 4th great uncle, Ralph Bainbridge, at Longbenton in Northumberland. Ralph was the son of William Bainbridge and Mary Coxon.
