Burbadge, Henry 1875 March 12th Wilton
On Thursday last an inquest was held at Wilton, relative to the death of a labouring man named Henry Burbadge, aged 53. From the evidence it appeared that the deceased was in the employ of the Earl of Pembroke, and that on the preceding Friday he was engaged in cutting down an elm, being seated up in a fork in the tree. Whilst so engaged a limb of the tree, by some means, swung round and struck him, breaking his leg. He was taken home, where Dr Straton attended him, but the poor man got worse and died from the effect of the shock to the system. A verdict that death was the result of accident was returned.
