Hello,

Richard OUTRIDGE b. 1804 Newport, Isle of Wight

Richard was born in 1805 and died in Dec 1833. He was buried 27 Dec 1833. He was killed in an industrial accident. He was an engineer working on steam carriages. ??

Accident from Hancock's Steam Carriage.

On Saturday last, the 22nd inst., an inquest was held by the Coroner of Essex, at the Harrow Inn, Stratford, on the body of Richard Outridge, an engineer in the employment of Mr. W. Hancock, of Stratford, who met his death on Thursday under the following circumstances:-

... The deceased, who bore the character of a steady workman, was 28 years of age, and has left a widow and three children to deplore his loss.

1832 December. Richard Outridge, an engineer in his employment dies when a boiler explodes after he wired down the safety valve. Mentions George Bish the foreman for Hancock. [7]

7. The Morning Chronicle (London, England), Monday, December 31, 1832

From the accounts of the inquest it is 1832 not 1833. Richard must therefore have died on Thursday 20 Dec 1832 at Stratford, Essex.

Perhaps his burial was on 27 Dec 1832 at Hackney. ???

I also can't find a source to confirm his birth.

Regards,

Dave
