So that’s the total of the hospital inhabitants on the day of the 1881 census. Many were in occupations where you’d expect to have industrial accidents and become hospitalised - but an American Lawyer, and a musician? It was interesting to note that many of the older Germans had anglicised their first names and you could see that several of the British-born people had German surnames so were probably first generation. Those that came from Württemberg can be looked up in the Len Metzner indexes.
