Southampton Records Series, volume 47: Mary L. South, ed., The Inoculation Book, 1774-1783

Southampton Records Series, volume 47: Mary L. South, ed., The Inoculation Book, 1774-1783

Description

We are pleased to announce the publication of volume 47 in the Records Series, Mary L. South’s edition of The Inoculation Book, 1774-1783.

 

During the eighteenth century Southampton was renowned as a genteel spa resort. This new volume looks at the health of the town’s own population during this period. Successive outbreaks of smallpox assailed the local population, due to the presence of prisoners of war, and sick and wounded military personnel. This was hardly a good situation for the town’s reputation as a health resort. In the 1720s, however, a technique known as inoculation was introduced into England, as a means of protection against the disease. Many towns adopted a series of mass inoculation campaigns to protect their poor against smallpox and Southampton was no exception.

 

The town archives hold a unique record of three such campaigns carried out between 1774­1783. Each campaign records the names of all the poor inoculated, with their ages and parish of abode. In addition all the names of the benefactors, together with the sums of money they each contributed, are recorded for each campaign. This is a volume that gives a different perspective on Southampton in the eighteenth century, showing as it does some of the effects of the increasingly questioning attitudes of the period.
