Ref: C493 - K2/1/33 number 1721
Inquest into the death of MARIA HORRICKS, 17th July 1869, at the house of Thos Nichols, Beehive Inn, Knottingley.

Mary Jane the wife of John Keighley of Low Green, Knottingley a Compositor Printer says:
Deced was my mother and I have lived with her all along. She was 63 years old and the widow of William Horrocks a Vessel Owner. He died 11 years ago. My husband lives in Pontefract. Deced has always been stout. About past 11 o'clock last Thursday night before I went to bed I went upstairs and saw her in bed. She asked me whether I was going to bed. I then got into bed and immediately noticed that her breathing was shorter and on speaking to her she made no reply. I then fetched Mrs Jackson.

Margaret the wife of Thos Jackson of Low Green a Gardener says;: I saw deced last Wednesday evening about 7 o'clock. About midnight on the following day Mrs Keithley called me up and I went to their house and saw deced in bed.. Mrs Wass and Mr Brown went with me. Deced died a few minutes after 12 o'clock yesterday morning. I helped to wash and lay out her body. She was very stout.

Francis Creaser of Knottingley a Joiner says: I have known deced for many years.

Verdict: Died from natural causes.
