Bell's New Weekly Messenger, Sunday 26 July 1840.

Extraordinary verdict.

On Thursday an inquest was held at the "Crown Tavern," Lewisham, on the body of James Wells, a livery stable keeper, employed by Mr. Gray, of the Bolt-in-Tun coach-office, Fleet Street. It appeared that the deceased for many years had been in the habit of feeding a favourite mare belonging to Mr. Gray, who had formerly worked the animal on the Hounslow Road, but, in consequence of the railroad injuring the coach traffic there, the mare had for some time been running in the Hastings "Regulator." In consequence of this a very long interval had elapsed since the deceased had been in attendance on the animal, and on Tuesday last, when, for the first time recently, he was giving her her usual provender, she became extremely restless, and at last kicked deceased so violently in the temple as to cause his latent death. The jury, after remarking upon the singularity of the case, consulted together for some time, and finally returned a verdict of "Accidental death, with a diode and a 50 upon the horse."
