Emily Holland

Witness at Mary Ann Nichols' inquest.

Born c.1838, aka Ellen Holland, 'Nelly', Jane Oram

A friend of Nichols who shared a room with her and four other women at Wilmott's Lodging House, 18 Thrawl Street. Holland positively identified the body of Nichols after Mary Ann Monk suggested that the deceased may have been the woman she knew from the Lambeth Workhouse.

Holland had returned from watching a fire at the Shadwell Dry Dock at about 2.30am on the 31st August 1888 and met Nichols at the junction of Osborn Street and Whitechapel Road. Nichols claimed that she had earned her doss money three times that night, but had spent it (she was by this time particularly drunk) and was adamant that she would earn it again, refusing to return to Wilmott's with Holland. She allegedly claimed she wanted to go somewhere where she could share a bed with a man (presumably The White House at 56 Flower and Dean Street).[1]


This was the last reported sighting of Nichols before her death.

Emily Holland later received two convictions at Thames Magistrates Court for being drunk and disorderly in October 1888.[2]
