Ridge, John (1815–1867)

Mr. John Ridge, an old resident of the Windsor district has been killed. On Wednesday morning he was mounting his horse in George-street, Windsor, when the horse began to buck before he was fairly seated, and he was thrown heavily on his head, the horse also in its plunges stepping on his face. Mr. Ridge was picked up insensible, and carried to a neighbouring house, where a surgeon soon saw him, but he died the next day, of effusion at the base of the brain.
