West Kent Guardian, Saturday 4 January 1840.

The Coroner held an inquest at the "New Inn," Ordinance Place, Chatham, on the body of Mr. Thomas Clout, ropemaker in Chatham yard.

From the evidence in this case it appeared that the deceased, on Sunday morning last, was in good health, and went to Chapel in the morning as usual, and returned home after service, when he suddenly complained to his wife of a violent pain in his chest, and went and lay down on the bed. His wife, a short time afterwards, went upstairs to see how he was, when she found him dead. Medical assistance was promptly procured, but it was of no avail.

The Jury returned a verdict. "Died by the visitation of God."

The deceased was 54 years of age, and much respected.
