CANTERBURY, JULY 11. SUICIDES.

On the Saturday preceding the above melancholy event, a boy, about 12 years of age, in the employ of Mr. Pearse, at the "Carpenter's Arms," Ramsgate, put an end to his existence by hanging himself in the billiard-room belonging to the house, where he was employed as a marker.

 

Kentish Chronicle, 29 September, 1829.

Three men of rather respectable appearance arrived at the "Carpenters Arms" public house, Ramsgate on Tuesday evening, where they remained during the night. The next morning, having partook of a healthy breakfast, they requested the landlady, Mrs. Pearce, to provide dinner, and they departed as if to view the town. The appointed hour for dinner arrived and passed, and the strangers did not return, nor have they been since heard of.

In the course of the evening the landlady went for some cash to her bureau in the bedroom, which adjoins the room occupied by the strangers, and what was her dismay to find that the lock had been picked, and the money, said to be about 50, stolen therefrom. The unfortunate landlady had laid by the money for the purpose of paying her spirit merchant on that very evening. No tidings have been obtained of the thieves.
