Seymour, John Thurlow (1848–1896)

The City Coroner held an inquest at the Wentworth Hotel, Homebush, yesterday, on the body of a drover named John Thurlow Seymour, who was killed by a bullock at Flemington on Thursday. Deceased was 45 years of age, and resided at Reynolds-street, Balmain. He was in the employ of Messrs. Windred and Tancred, butchers, and at the time he met his death he was assisting to yard a number of bullocks. One of the animals turned and charged him, and before he could escape butted him against a fence breaking several ribs. The medical evidence went to show that death had resulted from injury to the heart consequent on the fracture of the ribs. The jury returned a verdict of accidental death.
