Mrs Tylers Unsolved Murder

The unsolved murder of Blackheaths Mrs Tyler.

Location: 67 Kidbrooke Park Road, Blackheath

Description: After William John Tyler died in early 1897, wife Arabella Charlotte Tyler lived on in their elegant detached villa here, just opposite both St James's Church and the Kent County Cricket Ground.

She lived with her daughter Maud and her recently widowed daughter Mrs Violet Huxham. Her husband had been the secretary of the India-rubber and Gutta-percha Telegraph Works Company Ltd, of Silvertown and they were waited on by Ann Gusterson.

On the morning of Monday August 14th 1898, Mrs Tyler was found by Gusterson dead at the foot of her bed. Dr Clifford was summoned and declared Mrs Tyler had been dead several hours and it was clearly murder by strangulation.

The servant, the daughters, no-one was convicted and the culprit remains unknown.
