There have been some quite interesting stories in the Leicester Mercury this week about old murders/ murderers. Tonights is about William Henry Palmer who was hanged for a murder in Walcote in 1911, his victim being an elderly lady called Ann Harris and the executioner was John Ellis. This is a full page article with pictures and reading it i thought how useful it would be to someone researching any of these people. What do others think that those of us living in Leicester could post details of any such stories appearing in the paper so that those living elsewhere wouldn't miss out. Theres also a focus on nostalgia page in the merc but thats generally stuff in the last 50 years.

Hi Paula, You got me thinking and have logged on to This Is Leicester which means I get daily headlines, already have one with Nottingham so your suggestion hit a note with me to get the Leicester one as well. If anyone else is interested just put This Is Leicester in the search engine. Hi Mike, Want to say a big thank you hoping you won't take an overdose. Have enjoyed my little chats with everyone and appreciate all the time you put in to help one and all. Now what was it I wanted to ask!!!!!!!???????? LOL Elaine

Thankyou, Mike I'm not sure if the William you found is the William I'm looking for but he could be. The William I am looking for I found on the 1871 census at Ramsgill, Yorkshire aged 31. My husbands grandfather was born in Ramsgill. William B was a schoolteacher there. He married Sarah Tomlinson in 1866. Their children were, Maurice H ,Alice M, Charlotte E. Thankyou very much for your help. Teresa
