Obituary of Joseph Lee (d.1880)

This obituary was printed in the Bucks Herald on 13 March 1880.

We have to record the death on the 6th inst. of the oldest inhabitant of this town, Mr Joseph Lee. Deceased was in his 89th year, and therefore born just about at the time of the French Revolution, and would no doubt well remember the celebrated battle of the Nile, the siege of Acre, and the war with Tippoo Sahib. He had been in business in Winslow as a saddler for many years, and had only retired within the past three or four years.

See 1841 census return (probably 25 Sheep Street)
