The inquest into the death of Robert Harris of West Lynn, was held on Friday 30th August 1839. He had been drinking at the Shetland Pony and had scuffled, in a playful manner, with the landlord of the house, Painter. Ultimately Harris was thrown down and Painter fell with his knees upon Harris's body, rupturing some intestines. This was on the previous Wednesday, Harris died of his injuries on the Monday following ( 28th August ). A verdict of Manslaughter was brought in by the Coroner's Jury and Painter was taken into custody, but afterwards made his escape and was missing for some time. He was later apprehended.
(The report does not give a Christian name so it is uncertain if this is the same Mr. Painter who appears at the house in 1846.)

Thomas Rayner was ordered to pay 7s costs on Monday 22nd August 1887 for having tethered a pony on the highway on 3rd August 1887.

Address 1871 given as `In the marsh'
