Northampton Hospital patients
Northampton General Hospital was founded in 1744 and has treated vast numbers of patients from Northampton and the surrounding area. FindMyPast has launched an index to admission registers from 1774 to 1846. Over 126,000 records appear, providing transcripts of the information in the original manuscripts.
This source can tell you of important incidents in the lives of ancestors and relations. In some cases - for instance if the patient was the victim of a newsworthy accident or crime - you may be able to find further details in a report in a newspaper, such as the "Northampton Mercury". Scanned and indexed images of this and many other periodicals are available elsewhere on the FMP site.
You can read more about the history of Northampton Hospital on its own website.
