12/3/1909 Thomas Adkins of Musgrave Farm, Fen Ditton carried on a butcher’s business in Norwich Street for 30 years. He was well-known at the Cattle Market and was one of the judges at the Christmas Fat Stock sales. His death at the age of 61 came as a surprise, as he usually enjoyed excellent health. About a month ago, however, he broke a blood vessel and in spite of constant and skilful medical attention he died. (Cambridge Press)
