An Eccentric Drunkard's Death

Post by Karen on Sat 30 Jul 2011 - 1:50


Mr. Wynne E. Baxter held an inquiry at the London hospital, Whitechapel, today, respecting the death of John Boyle, alias Benjamin Ryan, aged 40, a gentleman of considerable means. The deceased was discovered lying in an unconscious condition outside a common lodging-house in Brick-lane, Spitalfields, on Sunday last, and died a few hours later. - Alfred Devine, a bricklayer, stated that he knew the deceased, who went by the name of Ryan. He lodged at various common lodging-houses in the neighbourhood of Whitechapel and Aldgate. Some time ago he had a fortune left him. He belonged to a good family, his sisters occupying a large house in Cavendish-square, W. - Mr. Wm. Mold, house physician at the London Hospital, deposed that the deceased was brought to that institution in a state of collapse. He was delirious all night, and died at ten o'clock the next day. He had since made a post-mortem examination, and found all the organs more or less diseased from drink. Death was due to alcoholism, accelerated by acute pneumonia. - The hospital attendant was called, and produced two watches, a purse containing silver and copper, and a deposit note for 20 pounds on the London and Westminster Bank. - Mr. Hatton, a grocer, living opposite the lodging-house, also produced a sum of money which the deceased had deposited with him. - The Jury returned a verdict in accordance with the medical testimony.
