From the Kentish Gazette, 30 April 1839.

ROCHESTER, &c. Coroner’s Inquest.

An inquest was held on Tuesday last, at the "Two Brewers" public house, Chatham, before R. Hinde, esq. touching the death of Charles Newton, a pensioner of the 11th Light Dragoons, who resided on the Brook. From the evidence it appeared that the unfortunate man hung himself in the garret of his house on Monday morning, the 22nd. It is believed that he had of late been much depressed in mind owing to his narrow circumstances, together with the idea of losing his pension of sixpence per day, granted to him for two years, which time was near expiring. This preyed much on his spirits, and he had before threatened to make off with himself. He obtained a living by hawking fish and other things about the town. The jury returned a verdict of "Temporary derangement." The deceased was a married man, and has left a wife and family. He was about forty-four years of age.
