Just wondering whether anyone has access to newspaper reports or has local
knowledge re the murder on 27 July 1901 of Alice Ann Wright (my husband's
great-grandmother) by John Harrison & the subsequent trial. We know that
there was possible bigamy in the case. The murder took place at Rose Farm
Cottage, Bickerstaffe and John Harrison was hanged at Walton prison in
December 1901. The murder is detailed in a book called 'Hanged at
Liverpool' which is on order but any info whilst we are waiting would be
very gratefully received!
