Mrs. Elizabeth Boddington

NEWTON BROMSHOLD - SUDDEN DEATH—Mr. J. T. Parker held an inquest on Monday at the Swan Inn, Newton, on the body of Mrs. Elizabeth Boddington (62), wife of George Boddington, labourer. Deceased had generally enjoyed good health, but had complained lately of pains in the head and neck. On Saturday she went in to see her married daughter, Mrs. Wildman, and complained then of her head and neck. She said she should go home and go to bed, but on the way she was seen to fall down by a little girl named Ethel Ann Line. Help was obtained and deceased was carried home, but she died two or three hours afterwards. Mr. C. R. Owen, surgeon, of Rushden, having deposed that death was caused by apoplexy, the jury returned a verdict accordingly.
