About Thomas Newell

Thomas was Emma Newell (Mackintosh) younger brother. It would seem that Thomas was working at the sawmill at Beaufort Castle in Kiltarlity where his father was the Butler when he was crushed to death in the waterwheel. It happened at 5.30 pm on the 4th of July 1867 and the death certificate states that his older brother George was the informant. At this time Emma would be working in London at St. James Palace. Thomas is buried at Old Kilmornack Cemetary in Kiltarlity And the inscription reads, " In affectionate rememberance of Thomas Newell who departed this life 4th July 1867 aged 13 years.

Them slumber here in Jesus sleep, thy saviour and thy God is night. This mortal he will safley keep, till rais'd to immortality.
