Note: in November 1923
On 7 January 1924 the Home Secretary William Bridgeman announced that he did not intend to intervene and that Dearnley would be executed the following morning.
Just before the execution, the Home Secretary announced a last-minute postponement of the execution due to 'fresh information' concerning the murder.
The 'fresh information' was the contents of a letter, written to Albert's girlfriend Hilda May Storey. This letter was intercepted by the governor of Winchester prison who immediately requested a stay of execution. The contents were such that the Home Secretary immediately commuted the sentence to penal servitude for life.
Albert served 9 years of his sentence. After review, his sentence was commuted and he was released on 11th November 1932 (aged 29).

Edward Darnelie left a will on 10 June 1676.
The use of initial capitals is erratic and it is difficult to tell when an initial capital is intended.
2ly etc is used in the will for secondly etc. Westham, Essex, is assumed to refer to West Ham.
‘=’ is used in the will instead of a hyphen, but a hyphen is used below for ease of reading.
Guesses are in italics. Abbreviations are expanded thus: Eliz(abeth).
The names of relatives mentioned in the will are listed at the end.
