I think there are two words in the first line of the cause of death column, I think the first of these is hemiplegia.

Motherís maiden surname looks like Hunter to me.

Could you please give the census reference so that we can take a look at the original?

"acrosWe hMystery"

What means that?

Well, if you read what has been posted all becomes clear  :)

We all make mistakes from time to time when we're typing.

Lee, you might find it useful to read section 11 here https://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/help-with-your-research/research-guides/census-records/ which explains census series, piece numbers etc very clearly.

molar, presumably you know that he's buried in the churchyard at Ninebanks (St Mark)?

I see that the informant, Isaac Newton, also a lead miner, was his neighbour according to the 1841 census.

For what it's worth I'm sure the relevant word on the death certificate is 'hand'. Presumably it was thought that some sort of contamination had entered his hand which then caused tetanus.

I can't find this street on census In 1850.

St James Terrace, Winchester, UK.

St James' Terrace ia at Piece 1674, Folio 84,  Page number 59.  It is in the parish of St Thomas.

Debra  :)

Debra, hope you don't mind but I looked at the reference you gave, which only seems to cover St James Crescent. St James Terrace starts at 1674/85/6 (schedule 228 - household of Martha Mount)

What does 'at Peice' mean?

For the purposes of the census the country was divided into 'pieces' each with their own unique number. St James Terrace in Winchester fell within piece 1674. Adding the folio and page numbers to this enables you to home in on a single page within the census.

Why is St Thomas listed, but not St James Terrence?

If you look at the page I have referenced you'll see that the street name is St James Terrace and the
Parish is St Thomas.

Is there a way to get the door number from your information and associate William Dynham with the specific property talked about in the Chronicle?

There are no street numbers on the 1851 census. My suspicion is that the households were enumerated northwards from St James Lane. The street name following St James Terrace is Clifton Terrace.
The newspaper article description seems to imply that Dynham's property was at the northern end of the Terrace since it's described as having 'a carriage entrance from St James Street'.

Some Lead Mining in The Lake District certainly.

This man lived in the north Pennines, Northumberland, not the Lake District.
The north Pennines ore field was one of the biggest and most significant in the country.
The ore was transported by pack pony to the smelt mills, and much of the smelted ore was exported from ports on the north east coast.

May I ask where he was a lead miner?

freeBMD shows his death in Hexham R.D.

Alan's map shows he was actually living in Allendale Northumberland.

The north Pennines were one of the most important lead mining areas in the country at this time.
