Annie Shuttleworth

Witness at Frances Coles' inquest.

Also called 'Anne'.

Born 1860 in Bury St. Edmonds, Suffolk. Married to James (b.1856, St.Lukes) and proprietor of Shuttleworth's eating house at 4 Wentworth Street. In 1891 the couple were living at 4 Anne Street (actually Anne's Place), Wentworth Street[1]. Mrs. Shuttleworth appeared on the third day of the inquest.

At about 5.00pm, 12th February 1891, Mrs. Shuttleworth saw Frances Coles enter the eating house alone - she was waiting for a man and had tea while she did so. After twenty minutes, James Sadler entered, decribed as 'a stoutish man with gray goatee beard. He was dressed as a sailor, with peaked cap, pilot coat, and dark waistcoat and trousers'. His beard was cut pointed and his cap was blue. He did not appear to be injured in any way. Sadler and Coles both appeared sober and had something to eat before leaving at about 5.45pm. Coles said that they would return later.

Mrs. Shuttleworth saw them walk off westwards in the direction of Middlesex Street (Petticoat Lane).[2]

Frances Coles returned alone to Shuttleworth's early the following morning where she was seen - and thrown out - by Joseph Haswell.[3]
