Cavanough, Henry Schofield (1838–1877)

About half-past 5 o'clock on Monday evening, Henry Cavanough, aged 39 years, died suddenly at his residence, Steel's-buildings, Regent-street, Paddington. Deceased was a currier by trade, and worked up to the 5th instant. He complained of having a cold, and was not attended by any doctor. His wife was conversing with him a few minutes before his death. An inquest was held this forenoon at the Royal Oak Hotel, South Head Road, Paddington. The Jury deciding upon the evidence given by Dr. Quaife, who had made a post-mortem examination of the body, found that death had resulted from disease of the heart.
