my gt grandfather was john heard.b 1838 north tamerton. one
of his sisters was elizabeth b 1849. she married richard lewis philp in june 1876. 1881 census maud b 1877 + sargent b 1879.
also john heard stepson b 1872. in 1891 they were living at
poundstock,nr bude along with my gt/gt/gmother elizabeth. i came
across details of the philps whist doing my own family research.
i have a rough summary of the trial including witness statements.
We have family background details to the case. Apparently Rose (nee Keighley) was a bit flighty, probably seeing another man, and was going to abandon the children to the care of her husband. He was upset because of the situation she was going to leave him in and begged her to stay. It is said that he stabbed her in the neck, on the doorstep of their house.
This is the first imformation I have received over my great
grandfather after many tears of trying. My mother was called
Rosina Maud after her mother.She had 2 sisters and one
brother, Glady`s,Doris,and Sidney, I have lived in Holland for
the last 30 odd years,I am now 75 years old,my elder sister
Betty died about 6 years ago, I would like very much to keep
in contact and share any further information with you
regards and thanks

Hello John Timms,
Have tried to call you on your mobile but no Luck.
If you send me your home address I can send you a copy of the
trials transcript.I`ve been trying to work out if we are related in
any way.Rose was my great grandmother on my mothers side,so
Rose must have had a sister or brother if she is your great aunt.
makes you wonder eh!?
