Wilbow, Elizabeth (1780–1831)

The same day another inquest was held at the Coach and Horses, Cumberland-street, on a poor woman, named Elizabeth Shipp, living in that street, who had, on the afternoon of Sunday, while the other inmates of the house were absent, by some unaccountable accident, fallen into the fire, and become so dreadfully injured that she expired about 11 o'clock the same night. Verdict — Elizabeth Shipp was so severely and accidentally burnt on the 5th instant, that she expired a few hours after the accident.
