Kentish Mercury, Friday 10 January 1890.

Fatal Accident to a Child.

A few days since at the "Yacht Tavern, Erith, on the body of Sidney Thomas Jones, age 4 and a half years, son of Mrs. Jones, of the "Crown Inn," Erith. The child had been left in a nursery, which was situated on the third floor, the window of which looked into Cross Street. During the absence of the nurse-girl, scrubbing the floor in the next room, the deceased undid the catch of the window, which he pushed up and whilst looking out fell onto the pavement below, a distance of about 30 feet, and rolled into the gutter. He was immediately picked up and taken to Dr. Studdert's surgery, where expired from fracture of the skull and consequent inflammation of the brain. The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental Death", and exonerated all persons from blame.
