From the Kentish Gazette, 6 November 1838.

On Saturday se’nnight a coroner’s inquest was held before Mr. Cartter, at the "Angel Inn," Loampit-hill, Lewisham, on view of the body of Henry Beasely, aged 18, a train carter employed on the Croydon Railway, about the line of excavation carrying on near the "Dartmouth Arms." It appeared that on Thursday week, between three and four o’clock, he was returning towards the works, driving some empty carts, and when he had arrived within a few yards of a loaded train going in the opposite direction his train by some means unfortunately ran off the tram rod. In his anxious endeavour to prevent his master's horses receiving injury from that occurrence, he became jammed between the opposing trains in so shocking a manner that he was taken up insensible, and conveyed to a neighbouring house. Mr. Steel, the surgeon of Lewisham, was shortly in attendance, and rendered every assistance medical aid could suggest, but without avail. The young man survived the occurrence about twenty-four hours.

Verdict:— Accidental death.

From the Maidstone Telegraph, Rochester and Chatham Gazette, 19 October 1861.

Verdict, "Accidental Death."
