People of Hutton Rudby in the C18/19: Dale to Dunning

... from my working notes ... accuracy not guaranteed ... for explanatory note, see post of 14 Feb 2013


1872 Post Office Directory:  Hutton Rudby:  Frederick Dale, F.R.C.S., surgeon, Enterpen

Frederick Dale M.D was the doctor who certified Mr Barlow’s death in 1878

Frederick Dale was born in Yarm, and baptised 13 Feb 1843.  His parents were both from Yarm.  He took the MRCS England in 1866, then MD at Edinburgh in 1867, where he had studied.  In 1871 he was a widower with a housekeeper and groom and lived in Enterpen, but within months he had remarried, to Mary Weatherill [cf Letters to a Miller’s daughter].  The 1873 directories give his address as Layton House. 

1877 & 1880 Medical Directories:  medical officer for Hutton Rudby District of Stokesley Union

1881:  he was succeeded by Dr Melvin as medical officer, and in the census is to be found in Stokesley, once more a widower, but now with three children under the age of 8 [cf Miller’s daughter], and practising from College Square.  Directory entries show this address until 1885, adding that he was a certified factory doctor.  Bickford’s Hull Medical Directory shows a Dr Frederick Dale, with the same qualifications, at 40 Charlotte Street, Hull, practising as an accoucheur in 1882.  In 1886 the Medical Directory shows Dale at Weston super Mare, holding the posts of medical officer to the Great Western Railway, and to an Assurance Society (probably part-time posts) [Dr Geoffrey Stout]
