Title: Access to newspapers
Post by: missmuddle on Wednesday 13 October 21 16:55 BST (UK)
Hi All,
Has anyone access to Sevenoaks newspapers please? I'm looking for information on Josiah Allen a fly carriage driver who died 4th Q 1870 age 34. He lived in Westerham (New Street) with wife Fanny & his family. I have record of an insurance payment dated Nov. 25th 1870 so the accident would be before this.
I just wondered if there was any information giving details of what happened.

Thank you
Missmuddle

Sevenoaks chronicle is on the BNA website, you can search the site yourself.  Free trials are also available on the site  :)
