On Tuesday an inquest was
held at the Swan public house, Clewer, before Jas.May, Esq.,
coroner for Berks, on the body of Martha Bean, aged 58 years,
living in that village. It appeared that the deceased was
subject to spasmodic fits, and that on Sunday night, when in
bed, she was seized with one of those fits, but no very
particular notice was taken at the time; at an early hour in the
morning she got worse, and medical assistance was sent for, but
she died shortly afterwards. The jury returned a verdict that
the deceased died from natural causes. - On Saturday night last,
Mr.Barrett, sen., of Eton, while preparing to go to bed, was
suddenly seized with a fit and expired very soon afterwards. A
coroner's inquest has since been held on the body, and a verdict
returned of "Died by the visitation of God."
