Culverhouse, James 1886 October 16th Trowbridge
On Tuesday an inquest was held at the “Old Ring of Bells,” North Bradley, near Trowbridge, on the body of James Culverhouse, the landlord, who dropped dead the previous day.
From the evidence it seems that the deceased, who was very stout, was at work after dinner in his farm helping to load a waggon with hay. He had helped up 11 trusses, when he suddenly cried out, “O, how giddy I am,” and fell a corpse. Medical testimony showed that he died of apoplexy. He was 58 years of age.
