HART in 1794

Albert Rix was born at the White Hart 18.08.1877, his mother was Louisa Rix (nee Lawrence)

On Tuesday 7th August 1882 John Rix was charged with manslaughter.
On 4th February 1882 Rix was returning to Poringland from Norwich with Robert Taylor as passenger. At Bracondale the cart was in collision with a cab and both Rix and Taylor were thrown from the transport, the latter receiving a blow to the head as he fell. Taken to hospital, Taylor died there as a result of a fractured skull.
Rix was accused of furious driving. Witnesses thought him to be sober. He said that just before the accident he had been distracted by his greyhound trying to leave the cart. He had stooped down to restrain the animal and when he looked up he saw the oncoming cab. His avoiding measures were too late.
The verdict of Not Guilty was received with loud applause.
