Martin Boon c1890


The East Suffolk Gazette of 21st March 1893 reported on an event in Beccles ....
ACCIDENT
Late on Friday night Martin Boon was driving Mr Sampson & Mr Flynn to the Horse & Groom. The cart was overturned in consequence of a heap of manure left in Caxton Road. It was too dark to see the pile, and no light was given of the danger. Mr Sampson received very serious injuries to his head, but he managed to walk to his house a short distance away. He was covered in blood and Mr Aldous the surgeon was called for assistance.
