Leach, Elizabeth 1868 October 17th Amesbury
An inquest was held here on Saturday before Mr Cardell, deputy coroner, touching the death of Elizabeth Leach, a gardener. The deceased, it appeared, had not been in good health for some months. When her husband went to his work at half past six on Saturday morning, she did not appear worse than usual. About twenty minutes past seven she went to the house of a neighbour, Elizabeth Burgess, and said, “How queer I feel in my head,” and at once fell to the floor and expired. Mr Batho, surgeon, who was called in, gave it as his opinion that syncope from clot on the brain, was the cause of death. A verdict of “Died by the Visitation of God” was returned.
