Henry Elias Burgum (1835 - 1878)

Shocking Destitution
On the evening of Thursday, the 18th inst., Mr Carttar held an inquest at the Admiral Hardy, Clarence Stree, Greenwich, on the body of a labourer names Henry Ellis Burgum, of 7, Garret’s Court, Church Street, Greenwich.

The case occupied nearly three hours, but the facts may be thus stated: A little over two years ago the wife of the deceased made application to the parochial authorities for relief, and was informed that if her husband had deserted her and her children a warrant would be obtained for his apprehension. This appears to have made n impression upon her and her husband that, although he has of late been very ill and out of work, and they were compelled to dispose of their effects to process to procure common necessaries, they would neither apply to the Guardians for relief nor make their destitution known.

On the 1st of April last Mr Jordan, the relieving officer, in consequence of information received from Mr Bicknell, a rent collector (late coroner’s officer for Greenwich), called at the house, the front door being open, and, receiving no answer and seeing no furniture, concluded the house was empty. He was coming away, when he saw Mrs Burgum coming up the court, and she said her husband had gone over the water to declare on his sick club. She was not quite sober, according to Mr Jordan’s syayement, and admitted her husband was ill, but refused to allow the officer to proceed upstairs, and he left, telling her she would know where to find him id she required relief.

She never applied until Saturday, the 13th inst., when the assistant relieving officer gave her an order; but Mr Jordon knew nothing of it until he was met by Rev. F.S. Clark, vicar of St Peter’s, Greenwich, who told him Burgum had died without a bed, or a shirt or sheet to cover him. The officer found the body lying on some rags, but by that time a shirt and sheet had been obtained. Downstairs there was only a small table and one chair, and that was all the furniture he saw. Had he known on the first occasion the condition of the deceased, he would have urged his removal to hospital.

The Rev. F.S. Clark said on Monday morning he was in his school, when a lad came and said a man was dying in Garrett’s Court. He went immediately to the house, and was told by a woman that deceased had passed away and was lying on the floor, that he died of bronchitis, and had neither shirt nor sheet. Witness then met Mr Jordan, who said he had been unable to get into the upstairs room a fortnight before. The district missionary and mission woman had repeatedly been refused admission to the house, and witness thought death had been accelerated by want of nourishment and proper attention.

Mr Nicholson, the Union medical officer, said on receiving the order he visited the deceased, and found him seated in an arm-chair, suffering from old standing disease of the chest; and presumably there was a bed upstairs, although he saw very little furniture downstairs, he directed the wife to give deceased beef tea and get him to bed. She did not say she had no bed, or that she was in distress. Witnesses saw him again on Sunday, when he said he felt better, and looked so. Witness, seeing him in the chair, said he supposed he did nor care for bed, and he replied that he did not. On Monday morning he was called to the house, and then found the man was dead. Saw no food in the room, but had since ascertained deceased had had medicine and nourishment, and had been an out-patient of the Seamen’s Hospital. No complaint was made to witness, and it did not occur to him that it was a case of serious destitution.
