Reynolds, Elizabeth       1887 March 12th        Corsley

An inquest was held here on Monday afternoon by Mr Coroner Sylvester, on the body of Elizabeth Reynolds, the wife of Noah Reynolds, a shepherd, who had been found dead in bed the previous morning.

It appears that the deceased had been ill for a long time, and on Sunday morning, at half past six, her husband left her in bed, and went to his work. At 10 o’clock, Mrs Baynton, a neighbour, took a cup of tea to the deceased, whom she found dead.

Mr F L Flower, surgeon of Warminster, deposed that he had attended the deceased for the last ten or twelve months. Deceased was suffering from a gradual failing of the vital powers. He attributed death to syncope.

Death from natural causes” was the verdict of the jury.
