May 1986

A guard dog, protecting the house whilst Mr. Howlett was away, was attacked in a most brutal manner with a pitchfork, on the night of Saturday 11th August 1849. It was found dying the following morning.

Location 1858, 1863, 1864 & 1865 as Patrick's Island.

It was reported 24th February 1866 that on Thursday 15th February 1866, Mrs. Eliza Baldwin was discovered dying in bed, at about 5:00 a.m., by a neighbour. A doctor was called but  Mrs. Baldwin died within 90 minutes. At the inquest on Saturday 17th February the cause of death was determined to be "from the effects of a recent blow on the head", there was insufficient evidence to explain the injury. Mr. Baldwin had apparently been drunk the night before the death of his wife and may have struck her, but she could also have struck her head on the bedpost.

Lot 16 : Part of the Union Brewery Estate, sold by auction Wednesday 25th July 1866 for £670.
Buyer Mr. W. H. Exley.
