White, Clement         1883 June 2nd           Longbridge Devrill

Mr Clement White, aged 64, an inhabitant of the almshouses, was found dead in bed. An inquest was held on the body of the deceased on Thursday in last week, by the coroner, Mr F T Sylvester. The evidence showed that Mr Richard Prince last saw the deceased alive on Wednesday morning, and when a neighbour, Mrs Sophia Sansbury, went to see him, she found him dead in bed with his spectacles on. Mr R L Wilcox, surgeon, deposed to having attended deceased a few weeks since, and he was of opinion that death was caused by fatal syncope, and the jury returned a verdict accordingly.
