Leabourne, Samuel

Leabourne, Samuel         1868 September 5th         Wilton

On Monday last, an inquest was held before R M Wilson, Esq., at the Bell Inn, Ditchampton, on the body of Samuel Leaborne, who met with an accident at the Crow Lane mill. The medical evidence went to show that it was quite impossible for him to survive the serious injuries he had sustained. Notwithstanding the nature of the case, he lived nearly eight days after an amputation had taken place. The jury returned a verdict of “Accidental Death.” He was buried on Wednesday afternoon, and followed to the grave by several members of the Temperance Society and Band of Hope, deceased being a member of both societies.
