Note 1: Death certificate gives cause of death as peritonitis, death certificate being received from Howard Stanley coroner after inquest 30 Dec 1890. He was seriously injured in a mining accident a few days before his death and the family believed this was the real cause of death. Living 10 Penkridge St at time of death..

On Tuesday Mr T H Stanley borough coroner held an inquest at the Sportsman Inn, Stafford Street on the body of Jjames Harrison 10 Penkridge Street who died on the 25th December. Mr W Beatie Scott H M Inspector was present during the inquiry.

Ellen Harrison, widow of the deceased, deposed that he was a collier, and worked at the Goscote Hall Pit. On the 4th December he was brought home injured, and he was attended by Dr Somerville until he died. He told witness that he was injured by some coal falling on hum. He did not blame anybody.

Dr Somerville deposed that he had attended deceased, having seen him first on the 5th December. Deceased was suffering from a broken leg, and a few days afterwards complained of a pain in his left side, where inflammation set in about three days later. The inflammation continued until his death, and was the cause of it. Witness though inflammation was probably due to cold, and the injuries would only indirectly have anything to with the death. Probably deceased got a chill in removal to his home, and if he had not had the accident that probably would not have occurred. If witness had had to certify the death he should have certified inflammation of the bowels and nothing else.
