At the inquest the following Thursday it was heard that he had been at the Crown, Shipdham, in the company of others, on the 13th July and appeared ill. He had slept there the night and the next evening was found insensible in the road by a police officer. Mr. John Cushing, assistant overseer was called who in turn asked the landlord of the Crown to take care of him for the night. He was put in an outhouse. On the evening of the 15th `Paddy' was found on the steps of the Dog Inn and taken back to the Crown. Landlord Copeman took him to Swaffham and left him at the Angel. On the 16th he was taken to the Union where he later died.
On the 23rd July the overseer, Mr. Cushing and licensee Mr. Copeman were accused of accelerating the death of Mr. Smith by neglect and inattention. Committed to trial for manslaughter, bail was taken at £100 each and two sureties of £50 each.    To be continued..........
