Bell's Weekly Messenger, No.1813, Sunday, December 26, 1830

Friday afternoon, an inquest was held at the Castle, in Jermyn street, St. James's, on the body of Mr. Thomas Howard, a livery stable keeper, in the same street, 26 years of age. The deceased was married about a year ago to one of the daughters of Mr. Salter, proprietor of the Russell coffee house, Covent garden. On Monday last he dined at Gould's Hotel, in Jermyn street, with a party, and was taken home at night in a state of intoxication. He was left alone in his bed-room, which was in a gallery running round the stable yard, and it appears, that in attempting again to come down stairs, he fell over the gallery, and fractured his skull.—Verdict, Accidental Death.
