  • From the West Country News published in Helston, Cornwall on September 9, 1842. Births, Deaths and Marriages:

    On Monday last at Gwennap, the body of SIMON KINSMAN, aged 76 years.

    The deceased lived in a house by himself, and was attended by his daughter-in-law, who lived a short distance off.  On Sunday last about noon she called at his house, and finding the door still locked, she looked in the window, and saw the deceased lying at the bottom of the stairs, naked, and apparently dead. She made an alarm, and with the assistance of some neighbors, the door was forced open. It then appeared that the deceased must have fallen head foremost from the top of the stairs to the bottom, and had dislocated the bones of his neck, which no doubt, caused instant death.

    Verdict, Accidental Death.
