Hi There,

I find that a Morris Swinerton who died in Sep 1781 at Sellatyn, Oswestry.

He had an inquest into his death at the Eagles.

Two questions. Am I right in assuming the Eagles was a local Inn, or is it a place in Oswestry?  As I see there are a number of inn's with this name.

Where if they survived are the Coroner's Records for Shropshire?

Thanks

bswinno.

Hi, The Eagles is a public house in Oswestry, on the Bailey Head and it was common for inquests to be held in public houses at this time, so that is likely to be the venue. I suggest you contact The Guildhall, Oswestry as they have an archive of Quarter Sessions papers and these contain Coroners' Inquests.

Many Thanks for the reply to my request.

I will certainly follow up your suggestion about the Guildhall.

Thanks
