Coroner's Inquest William Barrett
« on: Wednesday 13 June 18 01:57 BST (UK) »
Hello

May I ask for a lookup of a Coroner's Inquest for William Barrett,who died on 20/1/1859 in Christchurch  according to the Barbadoes St Cemetery records.

https://archway.archives.govt.nz/ViewFullItem.do?code=23586415

I am hopeful he is my William Barratt ,painter and glazier whose death certificate has eluded myself and others both in the BMD records and fiche for years,having tried all variations of the surname.Last found on a Wellington jury list for 1855.His widow Mary Ann re-married in 1861.

William Barrett,subject of the Inquest was also recorded as painter on a jury list in Christchurch prior to his death.

I haven't been able to find anything on paperspast regarding the inquest.

Thanks
Barbara

Thanks Spades

Both for the look up and moving the post - I was about to apologize  :)

 No idea how that happened - must have been the excitement!

Thank you  very much Spades,

Sorry for the delay,Yahoo has now let me into your emails and the information looks interesting and somewhat shocking.

If this is "our" William ,it paints a very different picture as to his character.

I think it must be because the cemetery record is correct in other respects.

Again,thankyou

Barbara

Hi Barbara,

You're welcome! :)

Have you looked for any mention of him in the local Police Court reports on PapersPast for convictions of drunkenness?

And also look in the New Zealand Police Gazettes digitized on Archway.

No,I did search Papers Past for his name,but nothing specific.

Will try the Police Gazettes as well - they may have info on another habitual drunkard I seem to have inherited.

Thanks for that  :)
