From the Kentish Gazette, 3 November 1840.

Fatal accident in Woolwich Dockyard.

At a late hour on Wednesday evening and inquest was held by Mr. Carttar, the coroner for Kent, at the "Lord Howick" public house, Woolwich, on view of the body of Thomas Cheywood, aged 46, there was killed in the Royal Dockyard under the following painful circumstances.

From the evidence adduced by the jury, it appeared that the unfortunate deceased was a labourer in the service of Messrs Grissed and Peto, the builders in the York Road, Lambeth, the contraction for building the new basin in the dockyard. On Tuesday last he was employed at one of the movable cranes on the scaffolding, and while engaged lowering a block of stone into the basin, he neglected to put on the full pressure of the crane, until the block had been swung off the quay, and perceiving that it descended too rapidly, he attempted to stop it, and in so doing he was hurled by the handles over the crane, and fell into the basin, a depth of 40 feet. On being picked up he was found to be dead; and from dreadful injuries he sustained by the fall, it appears that death must have been instantaneous.

He was a married man and had five children whom he has left destitute.

Verdict, Accidental Death.
