Jonathon and Marshall Stables – 18th century Horsforth Medical Families rediscovered.

Dr Bernard Ryan describes the lives and medical practices of Jonathon and Marshall Stables as discovered through
the chance find of documents during demolition of a building in East Parade, Leeds. Jonathon (b1767) was born in
Horsforth and apprenticed as an apothecary and then qualified as a surgeon. His son, Marshall, (b 1795) qualified

epidemic of 1832.
