28/11/1868 – Hamilton Advertiser – Sudden death. On Monday 23rd, a man whose name is supposed to be John Russell, a labourer, belonging to Gloucestershire, but having no fixed residence, died very suddenly in Bell’s Brickwork, near Wishaw. The deceased has frequented the brickwork for the last three weeks, and on Sunday complained of being unwell. Mr Quinten, the manager, gave the poor man some bread and tea which he ate greedily; and again on Monday, on partaking of more food given him, he grew suddenly worse and expired about midday. The body of the deceased was removed to the old Orphan House and will interred by the parochial authorities.
