Heath - Medical Profession.

Postby Denise E Johnson » Sun May 03, 2020 5:43 pm

Whilst the world is in the midst of lockdown and self isolation with coronavirus (Covid) 19 which has no known cure. Scientists are frantically working on new medicines, or a vaccine to combat this new virus.
On Sunday 3rd May 2020 the vast majority of the world’s population were born or have lived most of our lives that medicines would cure us.

George Heath the Moorland Poet born on the 9th March 1844 and died on the 5th May 1869 aged 25 died of tuberculosis which by the 1960s was treated with antibiotics, and prevented by vaccine.

Over the years there have been many of the Heath family, including spouses, descendants who have worked in the medical profession mainly nurses, and even today they may be working on the frontline. The early doctors and nurses would be working without the modern day medicines and treatments whilst dealing with infectious and deadly diseases , such as polio, diphtheria, measles and the Spanish flu pandemic 1918 to 1921.

'Peter Frederick William married Annie Heath was practicing in 1885 and 1890 at 31 Stockwell Street Leek Staffordshire.'

It may help other researchers to point out that Annie HEATH was actually the School Mistress second wife of Peter Frederick William BLUETT – Surgeon of Stockwell St. Leek. His first wife was buried in Leek :
Leek Cemt. Grave No. 3955 BLUETT, GERTRUDE MARY d.1886 34yrs

In addition to those from the first, there were further children of the second marriage in 1886 at Cheddleton, St Edward's: (see attached tree below)
One of their son's, Anthony Thesiger Questal BLUETT 1886-1963 followed in his mother’s footsteps & also became a Schoolmaster.

Peter F.W BLUETT was descended from the Landed Gentry based at Holcolmbe Court, Devon. He was one of x11 children. He had been in partnership as a Surgeon in Leek with a John Cowan McClew & this partnership was dissolved by 1 Feb 1893 (as reported in the London Gazette); https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/iss ... 9/data.pdf

Peter eventually made his way to New Zealand & died there 23 Dec 1902, he is buried at Rakaia Cemt. NZ. It is not known to date, whether his wife Annie nee Heath had accompanied him from Leek.
His brother, Rev. William James Geffrard BLUETT 1834-1885 d.at 'Holcolmbe', Leeson. NZ, had also lived & farmed at Canterbury. NZ. He also engaged in local politics.

''c1857: his father, Peter Frederick BLUETT 1807-1884, lost the old family estate Holcombe through his gambling debts (family information).
1885: In his own will, William J.G BLUETT made much of his aim to restore the family fortunes, in which he did not succeed; he hoped his illegitimate son Willie would succeed in turn, and he did not. However the will of his father, Peter Frederick suggests that not all resources had been gambled away.''

I have found some details which differ to Mark’s reply above.
Peter Frederick William Bluett of Holburn London, (late of Leek) was charged by his wife, Annie Bluett, with deserting her on the 2nd April. The judge awarded her £2-00 weekly maintenance.
The Staffordshire Advertiser, Saturday 13th May 1893.
Annie Bluett nee Heath in September 1918, according to Military Records was living in Kent. She was asking about her youngest son Arthur Bluett. (More information to be found on my site the Heath And My Staffordshire Moorlands by going onto contents on this site and click onto the link page).

Arthur Bluett married Frances Agnes Lawler a midwife in Athy Ireland on the 15th November 1917 (the year of the Easter Uprising). Frances Agnes Bluett nee Lawler went working in the Americas. On the 21stJuly 1943 Frances Agnes Bluett was granted divorce from Arthur Bluett at Michigan Department of Health, County of Wayne.

My research shows Marjorie Caroline Bluett seemingly migrated to Australia departing London on the 18th December 1914 on the Osterley Orient Line, occupation school teacher. I do not know if Marjorie met her future husband Arthur Joseph Baines on the ship, or if she knew him before. Marjorie Caroline Bluett married Arthur Joseph Baines in 1916 Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Arthur Joseph was an Orchardist, his wife Marjorie Caroline and children were living Mangrove Mountain Gosford Austalia. Marjorie died on the 2nd July 1975. Marjorie was buried at Noraville Cemetery, Noraville, Cental Coast Council, New South Wales, Australia.

Lewis John Warren married Margaret Clara Bluett, aged 24, the daughter of Ernest Edwin Bluett , on the 16th August 1923 Newham Gloucestershire.

:lol: I have found some details which differ to Denise’s reply above:

The Baines' gravestones at Noraville can be seen at:
https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/123 ... eph-baines
https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/123 ... ine-baines (there is also another Baines, that could be connected) :
https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/123 ... ard-baines

Baines Arthur:
Private No.2114 1st Battalion.
Private Baines was from Mangrove Mountain. He was a 23 year old single,, farmer when he enlisted on April 4, 1915. His father was George Baines of Manor Farm, Hamstead in Birmingham, England. He embarked from Sydney on board HMAT A63 “Karoola” on June 16, 1915. (118. National Archives, 2013, op cit.)

Ref. [19/7034] 1916/00102 BAINES, Arthur Joseph of "Ironbark" Mangrove Mountain via Gosford

Arthur was residing at Mangrove Mountain, NSW on 23 Apr 1917, when he reported a stolen silver double case 'Waltham' watch, engraved with the initials 'AJB' on the back, to the local Gosford Police.
page 192 of the Police Gazette printed in Sydney.

Arthur is listed on the Mangrove Mountain Memorial Club board, Hallards Rd. Central Mangrove. NSW
(Memorial Board to those who fell / served) :
page 89 of 'Every Mother's Son'. by Michael Rooksbury.
https://issuu.com/gosford_council/docs/ ... n___iss_l_

His eldest daughter Marjorie's engagement was also in the newspaper:
Engagement announced in the The Sydney Morning Herald, page 32 of Sat. 3 Aug 1946

Her status as a Nurse was also announced a few years earlier:
16 Dec 1941: Reg. Nurse.
Baines, Marjorie Catherine, Lone Pine, Mangrove Mountain, Gosford.
On Page 3264 NSW Gazette Tues 16 Sep 1941:
Department of Public Health, Sydney, 12th September, 1941.

I have avoided including any more extraneous BLUETT's, of which there are literally hundreds but most are simply not connected to Annie HEATH of Leek, or of much interest to this group. The familial line that perhaps might be, to most HEATH researchers, is that of Holcolmbe Rogus, Devon, of which a huge amount of various sources of work are available on the internet if required.
