Abel, “Tar” (sailor) in his 91st year, living Crew’s Hole, survivor of the wreck of the “Royal George” at Spithead, 29.8.1782, worked as a labourer until 80, now on parish relief of 1/6d per week. BMerc 31.1.1852“The solitary survivor of the wreck of the “Royal George” is now living at St George’s, Gloucestershire. His name is Abel Hibbs aged 91. Until lately he was a hale old man but is now bedridden, his only support the Poor Rate.”(Report, Wells Journal, 3.1.1852)
In 1841 Abel was a labourer, living alone at Crew’s Hole. In 1851 he was a widower, born Downend, a lodger at Trubody’s Hill, St George, in the house of William Feltham, a hawker. The census helpfully gives the information “aged 90, Relief from Parish, mariner-at-war, and one of the survivors of the ill-fated Royal George”. It is obvious the census man was very impressed by the ancient mariner to add this information to the form. Abel’s death was registered shortly after the newspaper article in the March Quarter of 1852.
On 29 August 1782, whilst undergoing repairs at Spithead, the Royal George began to take on water. She capsized and sank very quickly with the loss of 900 lives, who included 300 women and 90 children who were on the ship saying farewell to their menfolk who were about to embark from England. Only one child, a little boy, survived by clinging on to a sheep which had been on board.
The remaining officers and crew (most of whom were dead) were tried by Court Martial but exonerated from blame. It was suggested the accident was due to the decaying of the timbers.

John, KW, lab, executed for murder of Eliza Balsom, supposedly after a lover’s quarrel, but more likely an accident. Opinion now is that Eliza died not from the wound but by the application of filthy bandages which turned it septic. After execution Horewood’s body was given over to dissectionists. A book survives giving account of the murder bound in Horewood’s skin. BTM 4 & 5.2.1821. Now at BRO. This book was exhibited in KW in the window of White’s bookshop in 1953, in 1953, as part of Festival of Britain display where, in my youth, I saw it myself. The roots of this index therefore lie in Braine’s History which I read aged 10, and the tragic teenager Horewood’s book.
