HENRY CHARLES COOPER                                            26th September 1879



          A schoolboy from Albion House Academy died on this day, the result of a fight.

          The two boys, Mr. Cooper and Mr. Deane were seen fighting in Oxford Street with a dozen other school children watching. Deane struck Cooper in the face at least once and on one of the blows Cooper fell to the floor. On getting up witnesses say he staggered, going around in circles and moving back and forth. A man passing by told them to go home and it appeared that they might have started on their way as they started walking together. A short distance later though Cooper fell to the ground. Mr. Thomas Fidler, who was nearby rushed over, picked the boy up and took him into Mr. Langley's house which the boys were outside of. Mr. Montague Palmer, Surgeon, was sent for, by the time he got there, only a few minutes later, the boy was already dead. A post mortem showed the boy to be in generally good health. Cooper's brother, George, noted that four years previous there had been an incident where Cooper lost his sense.

          An inquest the following day recorded a verdict of death caused by the congestion of the brain, which could have been a number of medical conditions including a stroke and meningitis. Deane was lucky not to be charged and was given a warning.
