    • At Plympstock, near Plymouth, Thomas Lockyer, esq aged 50 years, from a mortification in his leg, occasioned by his being thrown out of his gig, returning from Plymouth to his seat of Wembury Great-house. The circumstances of the accident were these: The gig horse, being a spirited animal, took fright, near Plympstock at a cow rising suddenly from the side of the road, sat off full gallop, and, jerking the gig very much on one side, threw Mr. L. out on the road so violently as to tear his boot, and lacerate the calf of his leg most dreadfully. In this agonizing situation he lay for some time, till found and taken up by his servant and some persons returning from work, by whom he was conveyed to Plympstock, to the hospitable house of Captain Bulteel, of the royal navy. Medical assistance was immediately summoned to his relief: the wound was dressed; but on opening it the ensuing morning, to the great surprize of the faculty, it appeared a mortification had begun to take place: and, notwithstanding every surgical assistance, Mr. L. languished a week, and then expired, having sustained his short but painful illness, till the hour of his dissolution, with manly fortitude and resignation. He was a truly hospitable and friendly man in his social intercourse with mankind, and has left an afflicted widow and numerous family to deplore the loss of an affectionate husband and a kind indulgent father. Mr. L. had just retired, with an independent fortune, with his family, to his newly-built mansion-house of Wemburv, and about a month since began to reside there to enjoy the fruits of his industry, when he was, by a fatal accident, untimely cut off.
