1875  CLAYPOLE INQUEST: An inquest was held on Thursday [26 August], by H Beaumont, Esq., deputy coroner, touching the death of John Dawn, when the following evidence was adduced:- Hugh Laughton, of Claypole said on Wednesday about three in the afternoon, he was in his wheelwright's shop, and a boy told him that a coat, hat and stick, was on the river bank. He went to the place and found deceased about 200 yards from the clothes, he was lying face towards the bottom of the river. Witness informed the police-constable, and the body was taken to the Workhouse. Witness noticed a little blood coming from deceased's nose, and that there was a mark upon his forehead. Hannah Betts, nurse to the Union recognised the body as that of John Dawn, late an inmate of the Workhouse. She last saw him on Sunday. He was an old man, but during the time he was under her care, he never showed any symptoms of weak intellect considering his age, he was in her opinion a man of strong mind. He left the Workhouse on Tuesday. Elijah Pearson saw the deceased with his arms, face, and knees, in the river, and assisted in getting him out, and taking him to the Workhouse. - Hugh Laughton sad where the clothes were found the bank slightly slopes to the water. He noticed footprints on the mud as of a person had slipped. They were on the same side of the river as the clothes. George Heard, an inmate of the Workhouse, said deceased, when he left the Union, remarked to him that he would not see him any more. Witness thought he referred to leaving the house, and did not believe he would destroy himself - Edwin Alfred Baxter, master of the Workhouse, said the deceased have no reason for leaving the house He was rather hasty tempered; but was not any trouble. He said he wanted to see some friends, and witness endeavoured to persuade him to remain in the house. The jury returned a verdict to the effect that deceased was found drowned, but by what means there was no evidence to show.(1) Grantham Journal

10 May 1831  MELANCHOLY EVENT AT Bottesford near Belvoir Castle on the afternoon of Saturday week, 30th April. It appears that the floor of the privy of the BULL INN of that place composed of wood and which was over the vault, three or four yards in depth, had for some time been in an insecure state, and at the above-mentioned time, four children from 9 to 12 years of age, went into the place and were dancing upon the floor when it gave way and the whole of them went down with it, and all were suffocated in the soil before any help could be obtained. One of the children was the daughter of Mr. David HOE, the Landlord, one the daughter of Mr. GEESON, grocer, one that of Mr. John SUTTON, fellmonger, and the other that of Mr. DAWN, Breather Hills near Barrowby [probably Anna Dawn], who the day previous had come to her aunt´s house at Bottesford to receive her education. An Inquest was held on Monday at the Red Lion before Mr. CLARK, the coroner. Verdict - Accidental Death. The Times

1840-  "When the cotton mills at Papplewick closed, about the year 1840, Mr. Dawn, once a book-keeper at the mills, opened a little school in his cottage at Broomhill. The day opened with a Bible lesson, and his scholars in later years used smilingly to tell of how the one Bible was passed from hand to hand for each to read a verse, their teacher meanwhile smoking his churchwarden pipe. At his death his sister, Miss Dawn, carried on the school for a few years."

By the bill enclosed you may perceive how Will. Brereton and his officers handle those I have sent to gather rents in Cheshire. Ralph Dawne charges the tenants to pay no rents except to him, and thus gathers one part of the rent, and I the other ; at which the country murmurs. Ask Mr. Cromwell to discharge Brereton, that the rents be restored, and I be suffered to occupy, or the King will be a loser. Ill rumours prevail...
