    • "WIDDICOMBE-IN-THE-MOOR. On Thursday last the remains of Mr. Henry CAUNTER, of Ponsworthy Farm, were interred in Widdicombe Churchyard, an the corpse and mourners conveyed thirther in a hearse and mourning coach. After the funeral it seems that the drivers (or at all events, the driver of the coach) partook much too freely of the refreshments provided, for after leaving Ponsworthy, on the return home to Ashburton, the coach was upset twice, and its inmates - a Mrs. NORRISH and a Miss PENNY - much injured. The former had her shoulder bone broken, and the latter her hip dislocated. They were lodged in some houses near at hand, and the following morning taken to their houses at Ashburton in a cart."
      Exeter and Plymouth Gazette, 7 October 1869.
