Joan Stevens talking about early local doctors in the 1800s. Dr George Symes Hooper-equivalent of the Medical Officer of Health nowadays-in charge whilst the cholera epidemic of 1832 took place. Through him and his account we know about the epidemic-we know less about the cholera epidemics of the 1860s. Cholera epidemics-people did now know what caused it-Dr Hooper realised it was down to bad drains, poverty, hunger and drunkenness. He concluded that it was introduced via St Malo and was made worse by a prolonged drought before it came about. Thought there was more drunkenness in Jersey than anywhere else in the world. Plans for drainage in St Helier-in discussion-after outbreak urged authorities forward. The outbreak was partly caused by the lie of the land-lower parts of land getting all of the drainage from all parts of the land. Outbreak started in Cabot's Yard, Sand Street. It was so bad town was divided into 12 districts with different doctors for each, all markets were closed and traffic between St Aubin and St Helier was reduced to a minimum. Cases where population dense were hit worst-St Mary and St Aubin escaped from disease. It was a mystery how St Aubin escaped-speculation that it was because it was richer, thriving and there were less people. Bad outbreaks-south and east of town, St Saviour, St Clement and Grouville-built up areas. North of island almost escaped. 341 fatalities out of 806 case of a population of 36,000-high incidence of deaths. According to the diaries of Sir John Le Couteur he believed the prime cause was the bad water where some of the privies drained. 1849-300 died and 1867 another outbreak-improvements in drainage didn't come immediately-improved after 1867. 1849 epidemic-an entry in a diary of people contracting cholera but not dying displays that not everybody died. Dr Joe Dixon-rhyme written about him. Treatment in 1851 recorded in the diaries of Sir John Le Couteur. He had to get from First Tower to Millbrook with his troops for a militia inspection. At Mont Félard Sir John Le Couteur got kicked by a horse in his ankle but carried on with his review of the militia. When he got home Dr Dixon was called-gave 12 leaches and a purge to the ankle, linseed poultices were put on but the wound went septic. He went to a doctor in England-Dr Brody told him to put on lead ointment and keep living well. Joan Stevens comments that treatments have improved a great deal today. End of Side Two.

In 1702 the Spanish fleet came back with vast treasure hoards from South America. The Mediterranean was being blockaded. Beauvoir, a Channel Islander, was chaplain on board Le Hardy's ship. He spoke French and so the people on shore told him where the Spanish treasure ship could be found. Le Hardy chased it and found it and took the vast fleet which contained 13 million pieces of eight amongst other things. The silver was melted down to Britannia silver which was very valuable.

In 1764 he went on a expedition to Pacific. During the expedition they annexed the Falkland Islands which almost caused war with Spain who had claimed them. It was an unsuccessful mission as the admiral in charge came back as soon as he could. In 1766 he was sent out in an unsuitable vessel, the HMS Swallow, and was away for over 2 years and circumnavigated the globe. He named many islands including the Pitcairn Island. De Carteret named one group of islands after the Channel Islands and although these have not survived many of the names have. During the time that they were away they lived in poor conditions.

A couple of years later Henry Dumaresq was in charge of HMS Cuckoo when it was wrecked in St Helier Harbour.
