WARLEY – HUNG IN PIG-STY

Inquest at Withens Hotel, Cold Edge by Mr. W. Barstow. Grace Holygate wife of John Holygate, a farmer of South Fly Farm hung herself [22nd March 1873].

Husband said she was 45 years old. He had left the house between 6 and 7 a.m. with son Frederick. After three quarters of an hour he returned and found her hanging in a pig-sty. Her feet touched the floor. He did not cut her down but went to his little boy and told him to fetch Frederick. He then went and told his sister-in-law Sarah Holygate and then went on the galloway to Mount Tabor and told PC Thos Taylor, who came directly. He said his wife had been queer for some time and complained of pains in her head. She said she had told so many lies about him that she could not fashion to go out of doors. Frederick Holygate, the son, said his mother had been quiet and had queer spakes for the last three or four weeks. Mrs Smith, a neighbour, cut Grace down and they all considered her not right in her mind. Sarah Holygate gave similar evidence. Three weeks ago the deceased told her she would hang herself.
