Just a choppy version-sorry-my typing is terrible!


DERBYSHIRE MARCH ASSIZES .
The Derby Mercury (Derby, England), Wednesday, March 28, 1855; Issue 3311

John Keenlyside,30,charged with killing and slaying James Gascoyne and George Siddall,at Staveley,on the 18th January last.

...............

Just to summarize-the prisoner was the boiler smith at the Speedwell Pits. On Saturday,the 13th January,the boiler exploded and killed two men and it was alleged that the incident was caused through the prisoner not seeing that the boiler was in proper repair.

Case was dropped.
