DIED

On the 2nd inst., at Tingewick, Catherine Paxton, mother of William Paxton, now confined in Aylesbury Gaol on the charge of poisoning his wife.

Local Intelligence.

The Bucks herald, etc (Aylesbury, England), Saturday, February 23, 1839; pg. 3; Issue 373

Ann Thomason who was committed in April last for trial with William Paxton, (with whom she cohabited) for administering poison to Paxton’s wife at Tingewick, Bucks, in March last, died on the 14th in the County Gaol, Aylesbury, and was buried at Gawcott, near Buckingham, on Sunday last, amidst a great concourse of spectators; and we hear that the Rev. J.H. Oldrid, curate of Gawcott will address a sermon to young people on Sunday next in allusion to the event. There has been a great mortality amongst the parties concerned directly or indirectly in this case; in September last Catherine Paxton, the prisoner Paxton’s mother, a very bad character, and a most violent enemy of the unfortunate deceased died, then the illustrious and pious Judge, J.A. Park, before whom they were tried at the Buckingham Summer Assizes, has departed this life; and now the unfortunate (and we hope in all charity innocent) girl Thomason, is gone to her long home.
