Harris, John            1869 August 14th          Martin

An inquest was held here, by Mr Wilson, on the 9th inst., on the body of John Harris, aged 67 years, a shepherd of this place, who died rather suddenly on the previous day, whilst at the sheep-fold. During the last 12 months, he had frequently complained of shortness of breath and pains in his chest, but had continued his work to the day of his death. Mr Clifton, surgeon, of Fordingbridge, who had previously attended him, attributed death to congestion of the lungs, and a verdict was returned in accordance therewith.
