1860-09-17 gave evidence at the inquest into the death of Thomas George Bridge, Esq.:

Charles Ferry then deposed that he resided at No. 7, St. Edmund Street. He was in that street at half-past 6 that morning, and his attention was attracted to something in the water. He obtained a line, and called to his nephew for assistance, and they drew the body ashore. It was about 20 yards from the quay. They threw a grapnel, and the second time it caught hold of it, and they pulled it in, and discovered if was the body of a man. It was floating face downwards, and when it came ashore the grapnel had hold of it by the hand. He did not know who it was until he was told. He was quite dead when they put him into the boat. When they got him ashore they sent for the police, and the body was removed to the place where it was then lying (the old Fish Market.) The body was found above the bridge, and about 20 yards from the Melcombe side. No interference with the body took place from the time it was got ashore till the police came, who searched the body. P.C. English (W.4) said he was on duty that morning about half-past six, at the station, when he received information of a corpse having been found in the water. He immediately went to Mr. Ferry's workshop and saw Charles Ferry, his nephew, and the boy who gave the information; and near the quay wall they got a boat and laid the body in it.

An open verdict was recorded: Found drowned.
