That seems to me what is says.  "Locked jaw" would, I think, be tetanus.

But from a Gunshot wound?
Possibly the wound was contaminated with soil .
lTetanus lurks in soil where there is horse manure ,people used to think it was rusty metal ,well only if the rusty metal had been contaminated with  the  Tetanus.

A dreadful death.

May I ask where he was a lead miner?
My ancestors worked in the Snailbeach Lead Mine, the largest in the country.
Shropshire.

It also seems an odd site for a gunshot wound ! Such a young age and he had a 1 year old son .

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.

Some Lead Mining in The Lake District certainly.
I think the little narrow gauge railway, The Ratty, transported ore.
