History
YearText Photos 
1812 On Monday the 8th inst. a child, between three and four years old, son of Mr. Carswell, butcher, at Elham, being improvidently left in a room by its parents, set fire to its clothes. The neighbours alarmed by its cries, hastened to its assistance, and extinguished the flames, by wrapping it in a sheet, nor, however, till the poor victim was so dreadfully burned, that death relieved it from its torture in about four hours afterwards.- This is the second instance of the kind that has occurred at the above place within the last eight mouths, and it is hoped will prove a warning to those entrusted with the care of children. Kentish Gazette - Tuesday 16 June 1812
