Gamblen, infant 1877 February 24th
On Thursday afternoon last an inquest was held at the Council Chamber, before the City Coroner, Mr G Smith, on the body of the female child of Ellen Gamblen, of Bath Place, Catherine-street. It appeared from the evidence that the child was born on Tuesday last, and received a blow on the head by a fall it had at the time of its birth, which caused its death. Dr Gordon said there was violence to cause its death, and he was of opinion that very probably there was concussion of the brain. The child was fully developed, and probably lived about 24 hours. A verdict of “Death from natural causes” was returned.
