Broad, Jacob 1869 September 4th Shrewton
An inquest was held here on Monday, on the body of Jacob Broad, a man 36 years of age. He was in his usual state of health on Sunday, and attended Chapel in the afternoon. After tea, he was in the act of putting on a collar, when he complained suddenly of a pain in his head, and in a short time he was a corpse. Dr Eddowes was sent for, but death had taken place before his arrival. Valvular disease of the heart was the cause, and a verdict was returned accordingly.
