Death and inquest

Feb 10th 1854

A strange eventful History

On Wednesday Mr BRENT held an inquest at the Queens Head, Keppel St, Chelsea, on Mary MADGET, aged 72 the widow of an extensive American cotton planter, whose history was of singular character.

The deceased who was highly connected, her grandfather being a Viscount, eloped with her husband at the age of 18, and they shortly after set sail in one of his vessels for America, where he owned several cotton plantations, and large estates in Pennsylvania and South Carolina.

At the time they started for America, Europe was involved in war, and while on their outward bound voyage, they were seized by a French privateer, which carried them into Brest, whence, after being detained for sometime prisoners, they effected their escape to England.

After a short stay in England they set sail again for America, and were again captured by the French, but before their vessel could be conveyed into port, both vessels were re-captured and taken to New York.

The deceased and her husband then settled down in South Carolina, where they lived in greatest luxury and comfort until the outbreak of the revolution preceding the American war, when her husband was massacred, she herself was cruelly beaten, and the whole of her property confiscated.

After several months of illness she succeeded in getting on board a British vessel, which conveyed her back to her native country after 20 yrs absence.

Upon landing in England she was unable to discover any of her relatives, and was reduced to the lowest depths of poverty. She then applied to the Government for compensation, but in consequence of her being unable to sustain her claims, in the absence of original deeds, her prayer for redress was not complied with. Still, However, several influential noblemen, from a conviction of the justice of her demands upon the Government, and sympathising with her, occasionally contributed to her support.

At length she found some of her relatives who granted her a small allowance, which, with that she obtained from other quarters, enabled her to sustain life, until her body and mind sank under the pressure of accumulated misfortune, which terminated in her sudden death on Saturday morning, when she was found dead in her room. It is the intention of the deceased relatives to prosecute her large claim upon the Government for compensation.
