In 1900 Rose and her partner, John Hall were charged with manslaughter of their 7 month old son. I have the newspaper article on the court case [reference above] but it was adjourned and i can't find any article of the outcome of the case, tho i guess they got off as they are on the 1901 census together and i was half expecting them to be on the census in jail.

All good found the outcome in a later article, they spent 3 months in prison waiting for their trial, judge thought that was enough punishment. They were very poor and she had taken the baby to the doctors a few months before for help. They were the ones who wanted to stay in jail rather than pay a bail as they would be better fed in jail to what they could at home. A sad story.
