Summons to a Coroner's jury and witnesses
This document issued by the Coroner instructs a jury and witnesses to attend, presumably at the inquest upon the infant. The outcome of the inquest is unknown, but no criminal proceedings are known to have resulted from it. The Burials Register for the parish of Llanbadarn Trefeglwys records "28th May  David Davies of Pen y Garn aged 18 months".
