Fatal Accident

A Memory of Austwick

My great grandfather and great grandmother came from the area. He was William Kidd and her name was Elizabeth. He was a butcher in about 1876. They had about 5 children I think. Elizabeth was widowed fairly young when William had a fatal accident going home in his horse and cart near Settle. Apparently he was drunk, and they had an inquest on him. I would like to know more if anyone can shed any more light on this please? Thank you
