Morganstone

Post by Karen on Fri 22 Apr 2011 - 0:24

At the inquest of Mary Jane Kelly, common-law husband Joseph Barnett, stated that prior to their relationship, Mary had lived with a man named Morganstone. I have done a little research on this surname, but cannot find any individual named Morganstone as a surname. I have, however, found articles on Morganstern and Morganstein.

HOPELESS, HELPLESS, HOMELESS.

A pathetic story of a Jew's brave struggle against misfortune was told in the East London Coroner's Court on Saturday.
Abraham Morganstein, a Hebrew teacher, returned to England six months ago from a trip to America. A sum of 40 pounds he had taken with him had gone, and, although admittedly a clever man, his old connection was irrecoverably lost. He struggled on, refusing all offers of help, until in sheer despair he shot himself.
In a letter left by him he said, "I have done it myself; I have got sick of my hopeless, helpless, homeless life - wretched, poor, old man."
Another letter, in Hebrew, contained a reference to the Talmudic law on suicide, and concluded: "I fell a victim on the battlefield of life."
A verdict of Suicide while temporarily insane was returned.

Harry Morganstern

HIS STAR OF HOPE.
Sailor Ordered to Return Rings to Former Sweetheart.
HAS SOLD THEM.

The vexed question of what are engagement gifts cropped up on the hearing of a summons at Old-street yesterday against Harry Morganstein, a sailor, who was alleged to have detained two rings, the property of Rose Boor.
Miss Boor said she met Morganstein last year, and became engaged to him. He gave her the two rings she now claimed, and the value of which she put at 6 pounds 10s. She wore them for some time, but there was more than one quarrel, and on July 15 Morganstein took the rings off her fingers, and did not return them.
Mr. De Meza, for the defence, said that was not the whole, or the true, version of the story. It was true the parties became engaged in December last, and Morganstein gave the woman the rings on condition that she led a respectable life and married him on his return, he being then on the eve of leaving for a voyage to Australia and back. He returned on June 5, and visited her and her relatives, but found his advances met by coldness, and eventually it was alleged that he was said to have a wife and four children. Morganstein said he had not, in this or any other port, and believed it was only a tale got up to put him off. He also found out that the woman had had a child.
Nevertheless, he was willing to marry her, and twice the day was fixed, but each time she put it off. She complained that she did not like the rings, and on his promising to get them changed she gave them to him. Then, as she put the wedding off on the second occasion, he kept the rings on the ground that she had broken the contract which was the basis of the gift.
Mr. Chester Jones said it was an argument which would not hold good in law.
Mr. De Meza said his client was a simple sailor who regarded women as the proverbial Star of Hope. He had been willing to take part in the game of chance called matrimony and take the woman to Australia, where he would settle down, but now she refused to go and only wanted the rings.
"Then she must have them, and I order that they be given up," remarked the magistrate.
"Well, she can't, for I've sold them," Morganstein interrupted.
"Then you must pay the value, 6 pounds," said Mr. Chester Jones.
"Then she'll have to wait till I've earned it by my next voyage," was the sailor's parting shot.
