Royal Tunbridge Wells

 

From Jackson's Oxford Journal, Saturday, October 14, 1826; Issue 3833.

DIED.

Mr. Eastwood, of the "Hand and Sceptre Inn, Tonbridge; (sic) whilst in seeming good health, and on the point of sitting down to his breakfast, he sank into the arms of death, leaving a disconsolate widow and family of children to lament his loss.

 

From the Kent and Sussex Courier, Friday 6 March 1874.

Southborough. A Fatality.

On Saturday afternoon a horse and cab belonging to Mr Stidolph, of Tunbridge Wells, were driven to Southborough by man name Trotman. In the fly with three or four people who called at the "Hand and Sceptre." The horse when pulled up staggered and fell, and died directly afterwards. Later in the day some amusement was afforded by a man who became so tipsy that he endeavoured, of course in vain, to raise the animal to life and could not be persuaded that it was dead.
