Suicide c1785
« on: Tuesday 24 April 18 15:03 BST (UK) »
Just wondering what paper I would need to consult to find information re the suicide of James Bayley?

His will was proved 29 Dec 1785, and he resided at Stourport in the parish of Kidderminster. According to a report in the Chester Chronicle he ended his life as a suicide.  There was a dispute re his Cheshire estates between his widow, Sarah, and his cousin, James Bayley of Stapeley, Cheshire.

Many thanks
