overturned by the horses taking fright

On Thursday last was married at All Saints church in this town, Mr. Roberts, hosier, to Miss Watchorn, daughter of Mr. Watchorn, woolstapler.
++Thursday died in this town, Miss Lambert, daughter to the late Mr. John Lambert.
++On Saturday last a post chaise belonging to Mr. Berrey, at the Lion and Lamb in this Town, which was returning from Uppingham, and in which were two women and the post-boy (who guided the reins from the inside with a piece of packthread string fixed to the Horses bridles) was overturned by the horses taking fright and running away with the chaise, which was torn all to pieces; one of the women had her arm broke and the other woman much bruised, and both horses greatly damaged. About a month since another chaise belonging to Mr. Berrey as above, was likewise broke to pieces in the same manner on the Loughbro’ road.—’Tis to be hoped these accidents will sufficiently alarm the landlords of the principal Inns on the road, whose property are so greatly at stake, and induce them to find out some means to redress so dangerous an abuse, and at the same time remove so great a nuisance to the Public, travelling on the roads, who are liable to a variety of accidents thereby.
++Yesterday morning Mr. Hurst, a Taylor in this town, was found dead in bed at the sign of the Marquis of Granby, upon the Harborough Road, where he had requested to lodge on thursday night; he had been that day to Kibworth, was pretty much in liquor, and had a fall from his horse, which is supposed to have occasioned his death, though no marks of any bruises appears on him.
