  • Notes 
    • September 1863 Chatham News The Shocking Suicide at Rochester.

      Bower Marsh Esq, Deputy Coroner, held an inquest on Saturday, at the Ship tavern, Chatham Intra, on the body of James Brisley, who committed suicide by hanging himself on the previous day. The Jury having been sworn and Mr Jennings selected as foreman, after they had viewed the body, the following evidence was taken.

      William Goldsby, landlord of the Victualling Office, St Margarets Bank, said he had seen the body of the deceased; it was that of James Brisley; he was brewers storehouseman at Hulkes Brewery; he was about 63 years of age. He, (witness) found him on Friday morning about eleven o? clock in a stable attached to the brewery; he was hanging by a rope attached to a hook in the wall; Stokes cut him down at once; the body was a little warm; had known the deceased about seventeen years; saw him three or four times a day; he had lately been low spirited; he was more so on Friday morning; saw him about a quarter of an hour before his death; he said he was very bad in consequence of the Steward of the Club behaving to him as he did; he told him (witness) he had been struck off the Club which he had belonged to for twenty one years; he said he had never received such a blow in his life as when the steward told him of it. When low in spirits witness had heard him talk about doing away with himself. His feet were about a foot and a half from the ground; there was the mark of a shoe on the side of the stall. There was no doubt he had committed the act himself.

      There were two more witnesses to be examined, but the above evidence was considered sufficient and the jury returned a verdict at once that the deceased hanged himself whilst in an unsound state of mind.

      The remains of the unfortunate deceased were interred in Chatham burial ground on Sunday afternoon: a number of brewers men in white slops followed the corpse, and there were many spectators.
