Driving a pig along the Kempsey road (a sad case of porcicide)

Sarah Dancocks was Ari’s 5x great-grandmother. She was born in 1803/4 in Kempsey, Worcestershire. On 11 October 1824 she married John Crump, an agricultural labourer. According to the Worcester Chronicle of 27 Sept 1865, a pig that John owned was being driven home by Sarah, when a man called Charles Burroughs drove over the pig, breaking its back. The case was also reported in the Worcester Journal on 30 Sept 1865 (both papers courtesy of Findmypast). John Crump claimed £1.6s as the value of the pig.
