That sounds good Astwood, can you let us know if there is anything from the Aston or Hockley areas.

The Hockley Parricide
William Workman of 21 Ventnor Road was killed by his son for killing his mother in 1892
the son walked free from the charge

The Aston Axe Murder
William Haynes of Waltham Street killed his wife Florence by axing her several times in the skull in 1893
he was hanged for his foul deed
