News: The modern name of Kent is derived from the Brythonic word kantos meaning "rim" or "border", or possibly from a homonymous word kanto "horn, hook"

Brittle Bones?
« Reply #1 on: February 23, 2010, 15:52:31 »

Mr William MOUNT, master carpenter, of Elmsted, going out of his back door fell down and broke his thigh - this is the 8th broken bone he has met with and is in a fair way of recovery, his age not being more than 36 years. 
His own brother, Richard MOUNT, has had the misfortune to have seven broken bones and now lies dangerously ill and is about 30 years of age - what is remarkable, their mother and aunt have had the same misfortune of broken bones, and not one of the four is able to walk across the room without help or crutches.
