Kentish Mercury, Saturday 9 January 1841.

Sudden death.

A coroner's inquest was held on Monday, before C. J. Carttar, Esq., and a highly respectable jury, at the "North Pole Inn," touching the death of Edward Davidson, age 88, employed in Her Majesty's dockyard, Woolwich.

It appears from the evidence adduced, that the deceased had just left work on Friday afternoon and gone to the "Sheer Hulk," his usual custom, for half a pint of ale, and then proceeded towards home, when Mr. Graham, who took hold of deceased's arm, but had scarcely done so before he fell, he immediately expired. Medical existence assistance was soon procured, but it was of no avail. He was much respected, and had been a number of years in the dockyard.

Verdict, died of by the visitation of God.
