a Miller of Hugglescoate

Last week a Miller of Hugglescoate, in this county, (who some time before had been disordered in his senses) hanged himself in a little barn adjoining his dwelling-house. The coroners inquest sat upon the body and brought in their verdict lunacy.
++On Thursday last, Daniel North, a Frame-work-knitter of Rothley, in this county, was committed to our County Gaol by Mr. Tilly, Coroner, charged with being guilty of Manslaughter, in feloniously killing one Francis Cooke, his Journeyman, — It appeared upon the inquest that North came home a little in liquor on Wednesday night, and upon his wife chiding him for it, a quarrel arose, and the deceased taking his Mistresses part, some words afterwards arose between him and his master and they had a scuffle in the house and fell down together, and the deceased fell against the wall or stairs, by which he dislocated one of the Vertebrae of his neck and died instantly. — North is since admitted to Bail.
