The doctor had seen Mrs Bradish in the previous year, when she was suffering from a diseased liver. He recalled: She had been, I believe, in the West Indies, and this had caused the malady from which she was suffering. She was very ill at that time, but she recovered, and I advised her to keep herself quiet and free from excitement. Mrs Bradish was indeed not a well woman. She had contracted yellow fever whilst she and her husband were in the West Indies in 1857. She suffered from pains in the head and took laudanum for her sleeplessness and had troubled dreams.
This book is dedicated to John. Introduction When Richmond’s history is mentioned, most people think of Hampton Court and Henry VIII. Crime does not obviously spring to mind, whereas it would if Whitechapel or Notting Hill were mentioned. Some books about Richmond and Kingston do not even allude to it. Yet criminal activity does not recognise geographical or social boundaries and this book aims to demonstrate this. Foul Deeds in Richmond and Kingston covers a number of serious crimes which took place in what are now the London Boroughs of Kingston on Thames (Norbiton, Surbiton and Kingston itself) and Richmond (Barnes, Mortlake, Teddington, Hampton, Twickenham and Richmond), from the early nineteenth century until the 1950s.
A contemporary publication (1887) noted, as far as Richmond is concerned: From a small village Richmond has rapidly grown into a considerable town, and building is still actively carried on. Its convenient distance from London, beautiful and healthy situation, and pleasant neighbourhood, all combine to make it attractive to those who have daily business in town, and still want a certain amount of fresh air, while the railway facilities have been greatly increased and improved of late years. Houses, therefore, of all classes, from the mansion to the cottage, have lately sprung up in all directions.
