Henry Baker, died 1886. The Maidstone Journal reported his Inquest.
"FATAL BOAT ACCIDENT AT AYLESFORD. On Sunday last a fatal accident occurred near Aylesford bridge. It appears that a man named Henry Baker, aged 25 years, with four others started in a barge boat about three o'clock in the afternoon from Aylesford bridge, and proceeded up the river as far as Allington Locks. They then commenced their return, and were joined by two other men in another man. At the "Forstal" the two men left their boat and got into the other, making seven.
   When nearing Aylesford bridge, the men all got on one side of the craft, and the consequence was that it upset. Each of the men could swim with the exception of Henry Baker. They reached the bank in safety, and the "long 'un", as Baker was called, was missed. Search was made and the drags used.
   A man named Webster saw Baker go under the bridge with his arms up, and the body was shortly afterwards found on the other side of the bridge in a place known as "Aylesford hole". Everything was done to preserve life, but without effect.
   The Inquest was held at the George Inn, Aylesford, on Wednesday, by the county coroner, Mr T. Buss. Evidence was given by Richard Baker (brother of the deceased), and George Tobin, who were in the boat at the time; James Goldsmith, who witnessed the occurrence from the bank; Frederick Webster, the man who recovered the body; and by Dr Muirhead as to the cause of death. Goldsmith stated that the men in the boat were skylarking at the time of the accident, but this was denied by Baker and Tobin.
   A verdict of "Accidentally drowned" was returned. The deceased was a single man, residing in Aylesford, and had worked for Mr Verrall, sand merchant of Aylesford, but at the time of his death was employed at the Aylesford Potteries"

"In the Midst of Life we are in
Death"

His Inquest was reported by the Kent Messenger.
"AYLESFORD THE FATAL ACCIDENT TO MR. MARSHALL.
On Saturday Mr Richard Preston, deputy coroner, held an inquest at the Chequers Inn, to enquire into the circumstances attending the death of Edward Marshall, master carter, who was killed by being wedged between a wall and a van-load of bricks, subsequently, it is believed, being run over.
   The accident was brought about by the running away of the deceased's horse. The following evidence was taken at the inquest:
   Mrs Marshall, wife of the deceased, and who seemed much affected, said that her husband was 48 years of age. He was a carter, and on Thursday he went to Burham after some bricks. Witness saw him when he started, but saw no more of him until after the accident.
   Dr Muirhead practising at Aylesford, deposed that he had examined the deceased and found a number of ribs broken besides other internal injuries. Witness did not know whether his back was broken, as he did not examine it. The injuries he had described were the cause of death.
   James Goldsmith, living at Aylesford, proved seeing the accident. He saw the deceased coming down the hill with horse and van. The horse seemed very restive, and witness believed the deceased struck the animal, which caused it to bolt.
   When they got down to the bottom of the hill the horse swerved, and the deceased still holding its head, got wedged between the wall and the cart. Witness did not see the van pass over the deceased.
   The Coroner having summed up, the jury returned a verdict that the deceased died from injuries accidentally received. Mr Marshall leaves a widow and nine children"
