Holloway, William

Holloway, William          1869 May 1st         Whiteparish

An inquest was held by Mr R M Wilson, on the 29th of April last, at Broxmore, in the parish of Whiteparish, on the body of William Holloway, a labourer of Broxmore, aged 42 years.

It appeared from the evidence that deceased was barking trees on Whiteparish Common; a fellow workman was cutting a neighbouring tree, and had withdrawn the saw from it, having nearly cut it through, when a gust of wind blew the tree against that which the deceased was barking, causing one of the branches to strike him a violent blow on the head, which knocked him down. He was rendered insensible, and never spoke afterwards.

Mr Nunn, the surgeon, was sent for immediately. The deceased was then taken home, and expired in about four or five hours. Verdict — Accidental Death.
