Titt, Elizabeth

Titt, Elizabeth        1884 November 29th          Chitterne

The Coroner for this district (Mr F T Sylvester) held an inquest in this village, on Saturday last, on the body of Elizabeth Titt, aged 67, wife of James Titt, who dropped down dead in the street on the previous Friday.

From the evidence adduced it appeared that on the day in question, the deceased was walking through the village to the parish grave-yard where she was going to look out a spot for burying a corpse, when, before she had proceeded very far, she dropped down in the road. Assistance was soon at hand, but life was extinct.

After hearing the evidence the jury returned a verdict of death from natural causes. Deceased was much respected, and the affair has cast a gloom over the whole village.
