PARTRIDGE, Joseph- Evidence at death of Sarah Noakes 1839:-

Joseph Partrideg being sworn states:

I am apprenticed to Mr Noakes, Whelwright and reside in his house. Yesterday and the day before the deceased was drunk all day. She had been drinking spirits, At five o'clock yesterday evening when the witness, Mrs Jordan came to Mrs Noake's , the deceased was sitting on a box in her bedroom and was so drunk that she could hardly walk into the next room to shake hands with Mrs Jordan. I then went to my father's house and did not return until about eight o'clock. Mr Noakes was then standing at the door, and we stood talking there for some time and about 10 o'clock I went to bed. Mrs Jordan came in after I was in bed and Noakes went to bed about half past 10 o'clock. Noakes and his wife had not been quarrelling, they occasionally had words, but I never knew hin to strike her . The deceased was an habitual drunkard asnm about a wek ago she fell against the corner of the table , whilst drunk and gave herself a black eye. Noakes occasionally gets drunk but he is a very quiet man.

I do hereby certify that I have made a careful Post Mortem examination of the body of Sarah Noakes , now lying dead, and from examination of the brain etc am of the opinion that death was caused by apoplexy brought on by frequent intoxication

[At the time of he death she was free by servituede and was buried 27 Sep 1839]
