  1. Rural Medical Care in England 1800 - 1850s

    Does anyone know what medical care (if any) would have been available to the Ag Lab population in rural villages of England in the 1800 to 1850 era? Was there likely to have been a "doctor" in the closest market town who would make emergency horse and buggy trips to a village 3-4 miles away, for...

  4. surgeon-dentist

    I am reading the Penguin Classics edition of Cranford and came across a footnote on the above, which may be of interest. Surgeons had only separated from the Barbers and Surgeons Company of the City of London in 1745, and they drew teeth, treated wounds and performed amputations. They differed...

  8. Dentistry - Way back then

    I have recently found a dentist in my tree in the 1830's and have been googling for hours. I am amazed at what our ancestors went through. Fillings were often mercury and many of our ancestors that died in asylums could have been suffering from mercury poisoning. Poor people were paid to...

  10. Question Dodgy Surgeon?

    I'm trying to trace a surgeon called David Hague. All I know of him so far is that his daughter Ann got married in Leamington in 1864 to Thomas Cuthbertson. Her wedding certificate simply gives her address as Leamington Priors, and I've had no luck finding the family in census records. I...
