TONBRIDGE WELLS. SHOCKING DEATH FROM BURNING.

On Tuesday evening Mr Buss, county coroner, held an inquest at the "Carlton Hotel," on the body of Ada Sibley, aged 40, of 24 Eridge road.

The evidence showed that on Sunday week the deceased was going to bed in a bedroom which was heated by a large gas stove when her night dress came in contract with the flame and ignited. She was severely burned about the body, and succumbed on Monday.

The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death."

 

Kent & Sussex Courier, Friday 29 May 1896.

Drunk whilst in charge of Horses.

James Edwards, a farmer from Burwash, was on the evidence of Sergeant Wheeler, find 10s. and 5s. costs for being drunk whilst in charge of two horses, in the London Road.

Witness stated that the defendant was riding one of the horses and leading the other along the promenade on the Pantiles.

The defendant was further charged with cruelty cruelly ill-treating a horse by severely beating it the previous evening, in the "Carlton Hotel" yard.

Alfred Pegram deposed that he heard someone thrash in a horse in one of the stables of the "Carlton Hotel." There had been a sale of horses that afternoon. The defendant then came out leading a horse by the halter, and continued to thrash it on three occasions in a most a unmerciful manner about the head and shoulders, despite the efforts of witness and others to get the defendant to cease his cruelty. The horse was old and very poor, and he could see that the defendant was under the influence of drink, but not sufficient to render him incapable.

The Chief Constable stated that when charged the defendant replied he "didn't remember anything about it; he must have been drunk to have done it."

The Chairman considered it the worst case of cruelty they had had before them, and it was happily for defendant that it was his first appearance.

Fined 5, which was paid.
