A murder was committed in the early to mid 1900's at the Black Cottage in rural Shirley Holms, Hampshire or perhaps when is was called the Little Cottage. This home is next door to my ancestral property. The crime was apparently a love triangle scenario. I have no names, specific date and am not sure if it is unsolved or not. The little bit of information I stated came from a previous neighbour of the said property. I have checked with police, the county records office, local historians and the National Archives but without a name and date this is very difficult. I'm hoping someone may be able to help me.
Hi very odd I was just talking to my husband about the murder in Shirley Holmes as I remember my nan telling me about it because my grandad heard the shot as they lived next door by the railway in moonrakings my nan died ten years ago but lived there for about 50 years I'm afraid I don't know any names but yes it was a love triangle and believe the husband shot his wife for having an affair. Many thanks. PS Shirley Holmes is so beautiful
