Twissel, Mary – 1888

Strange Drowning Case at Goytrey – Western Mail 25th September 1888

On Sunday the body of a woman named Mary Twissel, wife of Samuel, a butcher living at Goytrey near Pontypool was found in a brook near Llanvair.

The deceased had attended the market at Pontypool on Saturday as was her usual custom and it is conjectured that whilst returning home late on the night in question she fell into the brook and was drowned.

An inquest will be held and it is hoped further inquiry will result in throwing some light on the matter, which at present remains a mystery.
