ELIZABETH COSTEN WHO WAS DROWNED IN 1897
(SEE NEWSPAPER REPORT)

IN LOVING MEMORY OF
ELIZABETH COSTEN
WHO WAS DROWNED AT ALLINGTON
30th JANUARY 1897
AGED 44 YEARS

Elizabeth Costen, died 1897. The Kent Messenger reported the Inquest into her death.
"THE MISSING WOMAN FOUND IN THE MEDWAY
   Mr Preston, deputy coroner, held an inquest at the Chequers Inn, Aylesford, on Saturday, on the body of Elizabeth Costen, aged 44, the wife of Charles Costen, a labourer, residing at Aylesford.
   Mr S. May was foreman of the jury. Deceased left her home about half past five on Saturday evening, January 30th, with the intention of going to Maidstone by the towing path along the bank of the river. She was carrying a basket, a small bag, and a Post Office Savings Bank book.
   On reaching the Malta public house she went in and rested for about ten minutes, during which time she was chatting with Mr Thomas Clegg, the landlord. On leaving, deceased made a remark as to the night being dark enough for a lantern. Nothing further was heard of her until Friday morning last, when her body was found floating in the Medway near the West Kent Cement Works at Aylesford by Robert Fitzgerald, crane driver. Deceased had promised to met her stepson in Sandling road, Maidstone, on the night that she left home, at 7.30 in order that they might return to Aylesford together.
   After waiting some time the youth proceeded home alone. Finding that his stepmother had not got back, he immediately started off for Maidstone again, but could ascertain no further particulars than that she called at the Malta.
   The river was much swollen. The supposition was that the unfortunate woman had mistaken the lights at the Gibraltar, and, going straight towards them, had fallen in the river, which winds hereabouts. This surmise was confirmed when her bag was found near the spot. When discovered on Friday morning, deceased's hat and the bank book were missing, but some money was found in her pockets. A juryman stated he had known as many as twenty persons walk in the river at Allington.
   The jury returned a verdict of "Found Drowned", and requested the Coroner to send a representation to the Lower Medway Navigation Company, asking them to erect a fence for the space of 200 yards where the river bends, and at the spot where the unfortunate woman is supposed to have walked into it.
   Mrs Costen was well known and much respected in Aylesford, and has daughters residing in Maidstone. Only a week before the sad occurrence she had remarked that she thought her eyesight was somewhat failing.
   The funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon in Aylesford Churchyard, in the presence of a large number of sympathising friends."

   Kemsley gave Weekes the will and said he thought his wife was an executor and that the will was not right.
   George Fowle should not be an executor because he owed Kemsley a large sum. Weekes left promising to be back next day, and advised Kemsley to think about it. Next morning Weekes returned, Kemsley wanted to alter will and make his wife executor in Fowle's place. Weekes asked him if he knew what he had left his son Robert, saying he would be sorry to see any of Kemsley's children dissatisfied by the will, and advised him to consult his wife.
