An inquest was held by Mr R M Wilson, on the 2nd inst., on the body of John Montenero, a travelling musician aged about 50 years. Mr Asher, the landlord of the public house, stated that deceased had been in the habit of frequenting his house, and that he came there on Thursday evening, the 31st December, about 8 o’clock. He was not then sober, but he had more beer given him by some parties in the house. About a quarter past twelve he went upstairs to go to bed, but would not lay down until he had some brandy and water, which to quiet him, the landlord went downstairs to get, and before he got back again deceased had fallen down stairs. He was rendered insensible by the fall, and Mr Batho, surgeon, of Amesbury, was sent for, who attended him twice. He died about five o’clock, on Friday evening, never having recovered consciousness. Mr Batho attributed death to a fracture at the back of the skull, with probably effusion on the brain. Verdict – Accidental Death.
