Shocking Occurrence in North Lincolnshire
A Farmer Killed by a Horse
Tragic Incident at a Sale

On Monday afternoon [4th April 1892], at the stock sale at Mrs Barrett's farm, Roxby, near Winterton, Mr Robert [sic] Pulleine, farmer, Winteringham, was kicked by a cart horse which was being shown.  Dr Goodworth, of Winterton, was among the company at the sale, and rendered prompt medical aid, but Mr Pulleine only lived for 10 minutes.  The auctioneer had requested the company to stand back, but the deceased was very deaf, and at the recent sale at Wallcott Hall he was knocked down twice by horses.  The sad event cast a gloom over the sale, and much sympathy was expressed for the family, who are much respected in the district.  Mr Samuel Pulleine, J.P., of Owston Ferry, is one of the deceased's brothers.
