Tabor, Henry

Tabor, Henry        1868 May 16th         Quidhampton

A fatal accident happened in this parish, about seven o’clock on Monday evening, to a little boy, nine years of age, named Henry John Tabor. It seems that an engine and thrashing machine were passing through the parish, when several boys ran after it, and began climbing upon it. By some means or other the boy Tabor was thrown down, and the wheel of the machine passed over him. Dr Cooper, of Wilton, was immediately sent for, but on his arrival he found that life was extinct.

Presumably an inquest was held with a verdict of Accidental Death – Ed.
