^ ^ Samples from Volume 5: Accounts
Recently someone expressed interest (in an email) in finding out more about the death of Edward BROOKER in 1794. The Quarter Sessions don't provide any detail of his death but they do provide the name of the coroner who held the inquest into Edward's death, this by virtue of accounting for payments to the coroner. In volume 5 we find, in the records for Trinity 1794:

Edward Brooker
9d per mile eh!
