Gloucester Journal - Saturday 30 June 1866

Pillowell.—Fatal Accident. —On Saturday last, a man named Richard Jones, of this place, was killed by being thrown from a horse. From what we can learn, he had been to Alaston Meend and was returning home, when in going through a field known as the ten acres, he caught a horse that was grazing, and a companion assisted him to mount, when in a few seconds he was thrown heavily, causing great injuries, of which he died the following day. Deceased leaves a wife and seven children, and was about 35 years age.

Another report on the same page confirms he was a collier.
