Advice is at hand if you need an accident solicitor in Great Hadham
Great Hadham is a village in East Hertfordshire. Today, we often find ourselves growling and grunting when we turn the news on because we think that things are getting out of hand and people have stopped being treated fairly. However, when we start to look at the way people were treated in times past, we have to think again about the times we live in.
In 1878, a mother of 5 children, who lived in Great Hadham, died of smallpox. The children were moved to Bishop Stortford by the Union authorities and the home was broken up. The brother of the deceased lodged with her but as the home was closed up, he had to leave. No-one would take him in and as he had nowhere to go and no money, he had to resort to sleeping in a ditch.
He slept there for several nights and then he too started with smallpox. No one came to his assistance. A member of the Hertford Town Council saw the man lying in the ditch by the roadside in an emaciated state. He tried to get some labourers to assist him in getting the man out of the ditch but no-one would help him. He then drove to Hertford to state the case before the bench of magistrates sitting in Petty sessions.
The magistrates who were guardians of the poor and some of them churchwardens said that they had no jurisdiction and advised the man to apply to Hadham, 4 miles away. He decided to go to the police instead. Although the application to help the man was made early in the day, he was allowed to go until evening without anyone going to help him. When the police arrived, he was surrounded by 11 children looking at him. He was taken to the infirmary where he died.
