Monday 6th July 1846

“Grosvenor Canal, Pimlico, water let out for the mud to be taken away, which occurs annually. Evening, after business, some of the coalheavers with a net dragged the canal and caught fish of variety – a cold damp evening to be paddling about up to the armpits in mud and water. Purchased eight old prints this evening in Princes Street, opposite George Yard. Chief Justice Sir Connyngham Tyndale died at his temporary residence near Folkestone aged 70 years.”


[Editor’s note: The Chief Justice’s name was Sir Nicholas Conyngham Tindal]
