F. Tennyson Jesse (1888 - 1958)
Fryniwyd Tennyson Jesse (born Wynifried [also recorded as Winifred] Margaret Jesse, 1888 - 6 August 1958) was an English criminologist, journalist and author (she also wrote as Wynifried Margaret Tennyson). She was the second of three daughters of the Reverend Eustace Tennyson D'Eyncourt Jesse, and a great-niece of the poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson. Her most notable books include A Pin To See the Peepshow (Virago Modern Classics), a fictional treatment of the case of Edith Thompson and Frederick Bywaters, and Murder & Its Motives (London, W. Heinemann Ltd., 1924), which divided killers into six categories based on their motivations: those who murder for Gain, Revenge, Elimination, Jealousy, Conviction and Lust of killing. This classification of motive has remained influential.
