Joshua Merrin (g)
« on: Saturday 29 April 17 18:45 BST (UK) »
Joshua Merrin/ Merring was my 4x great Uncle. Born Elston and baptised there 2nd Dec 1815. I believe he was murdered. I know there is a newspaper article dated 23 January 1852  in the  Stamford Mercury. Is it possible someone could please be so kind as to have a look. I don't have access to the newspapers at this time. He was buried 23rd Jan 1852 in Syerston, Notts.

He was found by police in the Saracen's Head yard, lying in a drunken state. Conveyed to hospital.

Newspaper waiting for outcome of Inquest......conflicting statements as to the cause of his death.


His death certificate should state the cause.

thank you Nanny Jan. I realise his death cert would tell me cause. It was the newspaper article I was interested in.
