The Fatal Accident at Old Windsor
An inquest was held at the Bells of Ouseley , Old Windsor, on Saturday last before Mr.May, coroner for Berks, on the body of Geo.Field aged 35, coachman to Miss Harvey Bonnell, a short account of whose death we gave in last week's paper. Richard Weston being sworn, deposed - I am steward to Miss Harvey Bonnell, the deceased was employed in conjunction with other persons in felling timber, and whilst so engaged a piece of wood in its descent struck deceased upon the head and knocked him down; the deceased never spoke afterwards. Every precaution had been adopted by the direction of Miss Bonnell to prevent accidents, and with this view men accustomed to this particular labour were employed. Richard Wright corroborated this evidence. Mr.G.P.Heyward said that he was a surgeon, residing at Egham, that he was desired to attend the deceased between six and seven o'clock on Thursday evening, that he arrived at the residence of Miss Bonnell within one hour after the accident occurred, that upon examination he discovered a fracture upon the left side of the head, and entertained no doubt that the deceased died from concussion of the brain. Verdict accordingly. The deceased bore a high character for good conduct, and was much respected by Miss Bonnell, who has promised to provide for the mother of the deceased mainly dependent upon her unfortunate son for support. Lord Ashbrook, in a very handsome manner, as soon as he heard of the accident, sent a present of £5 to the mother of the deceased .
