Florence Maybrick – Liverpool’s Most Notorious Murderess
Florence who was originally from the USA met James Maybrick a local Cotton merchant whilst travelling by ship to the UK with her mother. Aged just 19, and despite an age gap of 23 years, she married in London shortly after arriving.
Their marriage appeared perfect from the outside, and the seemingly happy couple were regulars on Liverpool’s social scene, regularly invited to important social functions. However, this was merely an illusion, as reportedly James was a hypochondriac and regularly used substances such as arsenic, and was claimed to have had a number of mistresses, having 5 children with one.
Florence, unhappy in a loveless marriage had a number of affairs herself. After being told of his wife’s liaisons, a violent row ensued, which resulted in Maybrick assaulting her, and announcing his intentions of divorce.
On 27th April 1889, Maybrick was taken ill after supposed arsenic poisoning, and his wife was the main culprit. After a sensational trial in 1889 that gained notoriety on both sides of the Atlantic, Florence was convicted of murdering her husband, James Maybrick – the alleged Jack the Ripper!
