The death occurred on Wednesday at Beedon House, Newbury, of Mrs. J. G. King in the eightieth year of her age. The deceased lady was the widow of Mr. John Goddard King, whose death took place in February 1889. Mr. King sprang from a family settled at Wootten near Abingdon, who were leading agriculturists in North Berks

It was about 1841 that he entered upon Beedon Farm, his marriage occurring about this time, and Mr. and Mrs. King continued in residence there for the long period of 45 years.

Like her husband, Mrs. King had strong sympathies, and was of a generous disposition. During her lifetime she handed to the Newbury Hospital a sum of £300. But this by no means represented the extent of her charities, which were not only extended to personal needs but also to many benevolent societies and institutions.

The health of Mrs King had been failing during the last twelve months, but it was not until about six weeks prior to her death that she was confined to her room.
