And when I look at my scar from the attenuated vaccine that followed that, it makes you realise how disfigured you would be if you didnít die from small pox.
Side tracked to a friendís very interesting Norfolk families. MORGAN, PRATT, HORNOR, SUCKLING, GLEANE etc. And in London DOWNES, du CROZ, MORGAN (same MORGANs as the Norwich lot)

Thank you for reminding me about him macwil, my Nan whose surname was Jenner used to say that she was related to him. I must work on that line again to see if it is true, I havenít got that far back yet.
I got sidetracked with the Scottish side of the family as it seemed easier to access.

Cheers OFG

Glad to be of service OFG. I hope you do manage to find a link, he was a very important man in medical history, we'd be in serious trouble without his pioneering ways.

Yes it is easy to get sidetracked, unfortunately my foray into the Scottish branch was cut short by absence of records. (Total 3)
