I have come across a cutting from the newspaper in February 1858 whereby it states that a disaster in the mine on the 10th February led to the deaths of four people as per the attached quote.
The Boiler Accident at Boiling Well Mine
An inquest was held by W. Hichens, Esq., on the 11th inst, in the parish of Uny Lelant, on the body of John Glasson, aged 39 years, who was engine man at Boiling Well mine in the parish of Gwithian; and on the following day at the mine, on the body of Peter Kernick, another engineman; and afterwards on the same day, in the parish of Gwinear, on the bodies of Mary Webster, a widow, aged about 30 years, and Alice Jones, a girl of 16, who were laborers at the same mine, and whose respective deaths were occasioned by the bursting of a boiler on the mine, on the 10th.
I cannot find a death for this John Glasson in the usual places. And even if I could and the age is correct I am not sure who this John Glasson is. It is interesting that his body was taken to Uny Lelant for the inquest, however he does not seem to be a burial at Lelant. It is possible that he may have been the son of Jakeh Glasson and Jennifer Murrish but at this time I cannot find anything to substantiate this.
Any help would be appreciated.

Have you ruled out this one, William Glasson age 39 GRO Reference: 1858 M Quarter in REDRUTH Volume 05C Page 252 I know the first name is different but the age and date of death fit. And there is a burial at Ludgvan on 14th Feb
