Liverpool Bigamist

Justice 1882 style....


Edmund *****, aged 40, Engineer, committed for trial for marrying Jane **** a Liverpool barmaid, his wife Catherine Humphrey ***** of Cardiff, being still alive.

The accused was undergoing a 3 mths sentence at Birmingham gaol, when both women going to see their husband, the bigamistic marriage was discovered.

The prisoner feigned madness, and, by eating soap, foamed at the mouth.

The electric battery was applied, but it was only after several shocks that the result was satisfactory, and he confessed
