Murder at Birmingham, 29 Sep 1861

At the Warwick Assizes, John Thompson, a married man, the father of seven children, was indicted for the murder, on the 29th of September [1861], of Ann Walker, the wife of a glass-blower, and the mother of three children, at Birmingham, in a house of ill-fame in Tanter Street. From the evidence given at the trial, it appeared that the parties had been living as man and wife, and had come from Sutton to Birmingham Fair, and slept at the house in Tanter Street [number 6 according to Times Archive] on Saturday night, the 28th of September. On the following day, Sunday, they were idling and drinking until about between 4 and 5 o’clock in the afternoon; at this time there appears to have been some quarrel, for, some time afterwards, a woman heard a hooting or cries from the female, and, running up stairs, saw her on the bed with blood about her neck. She ran down, and a second woman, also attracted by the noise, entered the room, who saw the prisoner in the act of cutting the throat of the deceased with a labourer’s knife. It appeared that two wounds had been inflicted, which severed the principal vessels, and must have caused immediate death. The evidence being conclusive, the jury immediately returned a verdict of Guilty, and the prisoner, who made a written confession of his guilt, was executed on the 30th instant. [quoted from the ‘Annual Register for the Year 1861’, p253]

Tanter Street appears on a street map of 1880 in a central area of Birmingham which would have been in the parish of Aston. It had gone by 1938.
