Sudden death – On the 28thSeptember 1864, a man respectably dressed, between 50 and 60 years of age, stayed at the Oak tap, a low lodging-house in this town, and went to bed apparently well. Not making his appearance on the Friday morning, the landlady went into his room and found him but just alive. Mr Candler was speedily with him, but he died without exhibiting any signs of consciousness within about an hour, from apoplexy, there was nothing on his person to give any clue as to what his name was or where he came from and on Saturday afternoon “the stranger” was interred in Redenhall Churchyard
