    CAMBRIDGE CHRONICLE: Inquest. On Monday last an inquest was held at Ely, before Wm. Marshall, gentleman, coroner for the Isle of Ely, on the body of George Kempton, aged 45, many years a dissolute character, who, on Sunday morning last, about a quarter before one o'clock, left the Lamb Inn, and was seen by Elizabeth Onion going down Market-street in a state of intoxication. About quarter-past seven he was found by John Blinch on his face, close by the edge of the water side, his legs lying from the quay, and the upper part of his body and his head not being covered with water. On turning him over they found him quite dead, with a severe bruise over the left eye and on the nose, supposed to have been received by deceased slipping off the quay. Verdict, 'found dead'. It is said deceased had not been in a bed for more than ten years, and was no doubt going to sleep on board of Mr. Onion's lighters, he having slept there a short time before.
