Definitely says Fann in the report.

The inquest was held to establish if a ‘pernicious drug’ had been administered ‘for the purpose of destroying the infant’ which was illegitimate.

The doctor who attended ascribed the death to ‘mental excitement and having caught a severe cold’. The child was full grown, but lived for only an hour and the mother for only two hours.

Verdict, natural deaths.

In 1851 6 Castle Lane was a tenement with three families living there, like all the other houses.

Hi the only "Mr Sims" living in Union Street in 1841/51 was a James Sims occ Tailor aged 40 in 1841?

Possibly her father Henry Tann 55 occ Carpenter with Sarah shown as Mary? is in Union Street in 1841 census ref HO107/732/ 8/40 / 13
At baptism her parents were Henry/Sarah.

He looks to have died 1847 St George Hanover Square aged 56.

And Sarah 1852 Hanover Square aged 63
In 1851 with her son James aged 20 b Chelsea aged 66?

Oh thank you so much for this! Yes, that's her! (It's actually Tann, not Fann.) Where is this report? How can I access it?

Love Lynne

I guess the Fann instead of Tann is why I couldn't find her when I searched the BNA. She's recorded as Tann on the death certificate.
