Another old Newburian passed away on Thursday last, we refer to Daniel Payne, of Coxedd and Pearce's Almshouses.

When a lad he was apprenticed to Mr. Thomas Smith, boat (or barge) builder of the Wharf. At this time the canal was extensively used for the transit of merchandise, and boat building was a thriving industry.

At the age of 15, young Payne caught a chill, which settled in his right knee, eventually necessitating his going to the Oxford Hospital. After staying there for five months, the doctor, decided to amputate the limb just above the knee, and, as the patient afterwards explained, he was given a piece of string to chew so that he should not bite his tongue, chloroform not being in use at that time. The operation being successful he returned, and settling down at Stroud Green was married at the age of 37.

Boat-building becoming a decayed trade, he supported himself by letting out a pony and cart, and doing any work he could get. Mr. Payne was very of kind to children, and "Dan’l"(as he was called), was often asked, "Oh do give me a ride on your pony "?” The latter too had a true affection for his master, and would run towards him on hearing his voice.

Becoming a victim to rheumatish and " chalky" gout, he was glad, seventeen years ago, to le appointed to one of the pleasant almshouses on the Enbourn road. For upwards of sixty-years he was a member of the Baptist Church, and letters received since his death testify to the impression made as to his integrity of character and consistency of life.

He was laid to rest in Newbury Cemetery on Tuesday, the Rev. G. J. Knight officiating. The mourners were his widow, her daughter, son-in-law, two grandchildren and niece. There were no flowers by request of the deceased, but the widow and relations wish to thank all friends for kind enquiries and sympathy.
