  • Notes 
    • February 9th 1825. Inquests by Mr Caines of Langport. An inquest was holden at Porlock on Saturday last, on the body of Andrew Moffat, aged 23, a native of Dumfries, and a hawker of teas. The deceased was addicted to drinking of spirits, and having met with a farmer's boy on Wednesday, the third instant, they both drank brandy to such an excess, (of which liquor the deceased had a supply in his pocket) that the boy fell asleep and on his return home related what had occurred. The next day a person who had been sent in search of a mule which the boy had been riding, discovered the deceased lying in the road quite dead, at a place called Home-bush Lane. Some parcels of tea were found near the deceased, and about £7 was found in his pocket. Verdict, "Died by the combined effects of intoxication and inclemency of the weather".
