Ruabon Cottage Hospital
« on: Wednesday 09 March 16 17:21 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to find cottage hospital records for Ruabon for the year 1874. My great great uncle Samson Lemon was only 13 must have just left school as you did then.  He was involved in an accident at Mr Bowers Brickworks, Ruabon.  He spent 12 weeks in the Ruabon Cottage Hospital so he must have had serious injuries.  I know this because he wrote a letter to the local Wrexham paper when he came out of hospital, giving thanks for his care and to individual people who had been kind to him during his stay there. Samson went out to Australia in 1883 and remained in the brickmakers trade, he became a brickmakers foreman, but he never married and really from what I can find out led a sad life which was probably very hard as well.  He died in 1907 and I have the inquest into his death.  Samson is in 1881 Ruabon census and he is a brickmakers labourer then, 6 years after his accident. I would like to find out what happened to him in 1874 if possible. Suzanna
