Hugh Jameison (1768 - 1834) - son of Adam Jameison (abut 1745 - ?)
Hugh Jameispn was baptized in 1768 in St George in the East, Stepney, London. The IGI has that the Baptism Register of St George in the East, Stepney has the entry:
Hugh, son of Adam and Jane Jameson was baptised on the 23/10/1768.
He died in 1834 in the Workhouse in St Mary, Whitechapel, London.100 The burial Register at St Mary, Whitechapel, has the entry:
Hugh Jameison (Chol), aged 60, of the Workhouse, R.M. Lane, was buried on the 6th August 1834.
It is possible that the '(Chol)' appended to Hugh's name means that he died of Cholera. There was a worldwide outbreak of Cholera that hit the UK in 1832. Outbreaks continued for another 20 years.
On the same day 5 other person from the workhouse were buried. However, Hugh Jameison is the only one to have the word '(Chol)' appended to his name.
On the 11th August a further thre inmates of the Workhouse are buried and 3 days after that a further 7 inmates are buried.
It is understandable why people hated the Workhouse culture that was present in the UK at that time.
