Widecombe History Group Minutes November 2001
Jim Churchward, who’s family ran a grocery business in North Street Ashburton, told how they delivered around the area. His father after coning out of the army where he had learnt to drive ‘model T fords’ worked for firm ‘Vigers’ of Torquay selling cars. In c1924 he was sent to teach H.H.Hannaford of Southcombe Farm, Widecombe, to drive. H.H. had deformed hands and could not manage to drive what was in fact the first car in the parish. H.H.H. persuaded Mr Churchward to stay and he became the chauffeur. When he bought it he had Mr Churchward bring the car into the village and take all the school children, five or six at a time, for ride around Venton, Dunstone and back to the village as a treat. He took local farmers to grass sales and markets at times. (N.B. H.H.H. was a member of the Congregational Chapel at Dunstone and it was he who had built the little stone shed on the left of the Widecombe Dunstone road just before you reach the chapel to house his pony when he went to chapel). He was also a leading light in the parish, councillor, school manager and the like.

Alleged assault at Clyst St George
Magisterial proceedings at Exmouth
Scene in court
A special Session was held at Exmouth Public Hall on Wednesday, Colonel NAPIER in the chair, to hear a case against Walter COLES, farm labourer, who was charged on warrant, with assaulting and beating Elizabeth PAGE, at Clyst St George on Sunday last. The prosecutrix, a domestic servant to Mr HANNAFORD, Marsh Farm, Clyst St George, and who appeared in Court, with her arm in a sling, said on Sunday evening, just before 9, she was in the road near the St George and the Dragon proceeding towards the farm, when she saw the prisoner by the door of the public house. Witness heard someone whistle to her but she did not look back. She then saw the prisoner running after her. On coming up to her he took her by the arm and swung her round. It was raining at the time and the prisoner asked for part of her umbrella. She refused, and the prisoner then caught her hold around the neck, and, catching hold of the umbrella, struck her a violent blow on the arm with it. At this moment prosecutrix heard her arm go "crack". A woman then came in sight, and the prisoner took the umbrella and walked away, she [witness] fainting at the time. Elizabeth TRIBLEY, the woman, said to the prisoner, "It is a fine thing to take away the girl's umbrella," and he replied "Yes it is" After fainting witness could not remember anything else until she found herself in her sister's house. Prosecutrix went to the Devon and Exeter Hospital at 1am on Sunday night, when her arm was bandaged.
Prisoner said he went into the public house about 7pm, and did not go out until about 9pm when he went home. He had never seen the girl for the evening, and had never spoken to her. Elizabeth TRIBLEY, wife of George TRIBLEY, of Clyst St George, said she was returning from the Topsham Station on Sunday evening, and when near the St George and Dragon Inn, she saw a young man and woman together, who she thought at first were "iteming" On going near to them she heard the girl call out, "Let me go, let me alone" When the witness went to them the prisoner let prosecutrix go, the latter saying that he had taken away her umbrella. Witness said it was a "shame", when prisoner replied, "Yes 'tis, idn't it" Witness made inquiries about the prisoner, and informed the prosecutrix's brother-in-law of the occurrence. At this point prosecutrix had a fit, and it was with difficulty two policemen could hold her.
Edward PARSONS, of Clyst St George, employed at the manure works Topsham, brother-in-law to the prosecutrix was next called, and said he left the public house on Sunday night about 10 mins to nine, where he had seen the prisoner. Soon after arriving home the prosecutrix was brought in, in a fainting condition. Witness went and informed her master of it, and while out he saw the prisoner with the girl's umbrella. On being asked why he assaulted the girl, he said he did it for a joke, and he wanted a part of her umbrella as it was raining. Prisoner gave the witness the umbrella. Witness saw a doctor at Clyst St George, who ordered him to take the girl to the Devon and Exeter Hospital where her arm was bandaged. No bones were found to be broken. Prisoner was wearing a grey suit of clothes.
Walter BERRY, a carter and John BRAY, a bricklayer's labourer of Clyst St George, proved seeing the prisoner in the vicinity on the night in question. PC PHILLIPS, stationed at Topsham, proved apprehending the prisoner on warrant, and charging him with the offence. He said, "They have made a mistake altogether in the man, I don't know nothing about it." Witness produced a suit of grey clothes which the prisoner said he wore on the night in question. At this point of the case prosecutrix had a second fit, and a medical man was called. Prisoner denied all knowledge of the assault, and said he walked straight home after leaving the public house. George BEDFORD, labourer Clyst St George, was called by the prisoner in defence, and said that COLE whistled to him and they walked home afterwards together. Prisoner was committed to take his trial at the next Quarter Sessions on a charge of occasioning grievous bodily harm. Bail was allowed, prisoner in £10, and BEDFORD became another surety in £10.

STRUCK BY TRAIN.
MAN'S BODY FOUND.
LANDSBOROUGH TRAGEDY.
    LANDSBOROUGH, August 31.
  The crew of the rail motor which runs from Gympie to Caboolture, about 5.45 this morning, discovered the body of a man lying in a drain abutting the sleepers of the permanent way about a mile on the south side of Landsborough Railway Station. He had been very badly injured, apparently when struck by the train travelling south. The police found in his pocket a returned soldier's discharge in the name of Samuel Hannaford (50), who served with the 49th Battalion in the Great War. A man of this name had a farm in the Glass House Mountains district many years ago, though he had not been seen in these parts lately. It is thought he may have fallen from the train going south last night and been struck by the other passing train.

  DEVONSHIRE NATIVE.
    BRISBANE, August 31.
  It has been established that the man whose body was found near the railway line at Landsborough was Samuel Hannaford, a native of Devonshire, England, who had been living at Ascot, Brisbane, up till August 26. He was a single man, with no relatives, as far as can be ascertained, in Australia. Blood was found this morning on the engine of the Brisbane bound train from Landsborough.

Body on Railway Line.
RETURNED SOLDIER'S DEATH.
Early Morning Discovery Near Landsborough.

  At about 5.45 a.m. on Monday last the crew of the rail motor which runs from Gympie to Caboolture, found the body of a man lying in a drain abutting the sleepers of the line about a mile on the southward side of the Landsborough station. The man had been badly injured, apparently, and had been probably struck by a train while travelling south. The police found on the body a returned soldier's discharge certificate, bearing the name, Samuel Hannaford, 50 years, who served in the 49th Battalion in the Great War. It was stated that a man of that name had a farm in the Glasshouse Mountains district many years ago, although he had not been in those parts lately.
  It is thought he may have fallen from a train going south the previous night and was struck by another passing train. The man was badly injured about the head, his right arm was fractured and mangled, and there were also severe internal injuries. An amount of 1/1 was found in one of his pockets.
  Further inquiries elicited that Hannaford was a native of Devonshire, England, but had been living at Ascot, Brisbane, up to August 26. He was a single man, and as far as could be ascertained, has no relatives in Australia. Not having enjoyed the best of health lately, deceased had left Brisbane with the intention of spend ing a few weeks in the country. The soles of his feet when examined were blistered, thus indicating that he had walked considerably since he left Brisbane.
  Blood was found on the engine of a Brisbane-bound train at Landsborough.
