"BIRTHS- PRITCHARD June 28th, the wife of Mr Will Pritchard, Derry Arms. Llangybi, of a son. "

"LLANGYBI. A. SAD FATALITY. On Monday afternoon last, an inquest was held at Derry Ormond Arms, Llangybi, before Dr. Rowlands, coroner, and a respectable jury, of whom the Rev. William Evans, the Vicarage, Llangybi, was the foreman -touching the death of Walter Pritchard, aged two years and nine months, the son of Mr William Pritchard of the said place, innkeeper, who died from the effects of injuries he received by accidentally falling from a cart about six p.m., on Saturday last. Mr Pritchard and the deceased had been to Lampeter transacting business during the day, and returned to Derry Ormond station by the afternoon train, where they were met by a cart to take a number of casks of beer home, and after loading, the deceased was put in the front part of the gambo with the reins. After they had proceeded as far as Maesyffynon chapel, another little boy come up and walked along by the side of the cart, and the deceased in looking down at him lost his balance, and fell over the side on his head to the road. Mr Pritchard immediately picked him up in an unconscious state, and carried him home, and Dr. Griffiths of Lampeter was soon in attendance, when he rallied a little, but about half-past ten he succumbed to his injuries. The jury returned a verdict of accidental death by a fall from a cart. Great sympathy is felt in the neighbourhood for Mr and Mrs Pritchard who are greatly respected in their bereavement.
