Scard Family - Small Pox
Cerne Abbas was plagued by Small Pox 1760-90, perhaps contributing to the deaths of William Scard and his widow Elizabeth (Jenkins) in 1754 &1760 respectively, however cause of their deaths was not recorded. The surgeon & apothecary at Cerne was recorded been paid a relatively large sum of money for the care of William Scard in 1754. The disease was recognised & spread through Cerne following the death of his widow in 1760. Their orphaned son, documented in the care of the Cerne workhouse. Young William remained at Cerne and subsequently his son James [born c.1784] was recorded heavily pitted with 'pock marks' in 1826, undoubtedly a remnant of his childhood. Jesty's effective strategy in subcutaneous inoculation at Yetminster in 1784 met with hostility, two decades later Jenner's vaccine was developed in 1796 although many Dorset inhabitants were reluctant to immunise. The Scard children grandfathers both paternal & maternal (Groves)had witnessed the effects of the virus during their own childhood.

Timeline - 

1793:         James Scard was baptised at Cerne Abbas, Dorset on the 14th July 1793, the fifth son and seventh child of William Scard and his wife Margaret nee Groves. 
                  The Ancient Church of his baptism and later burial is dedicated to the Saint Mary the blessed Virgin and had stood in Cerne Abbas since 1317.
                  
                  James had several siblings. Both his parents were native to Cerne, his father was orphaned at the age of seven.  James's mother was the daughter of a local 
                  successful farmer, the Grove family native to Cerne for several prior generations. 
                  In 1826 James was recorded with heavily pitted skin, a remnant of small pox during childhood.  It is not known if Simon or his other siblings bore the scars 
                  of the infection.   See 'Feature Story' above and scans of documents below

1810          James was aged seventeen when his brother William married Phoebe Gover at Cerne in 1810, at this time their father was aged fifty-seven. James siblings
                  gradually began to marry.

  At the age of twenty-six, James also took a wife eight years his senior. James Scard married Esther White at Mapperton (ten miles east of Cerne)on the 
  20th Feb 1819 at Mapperton Witnesses: Simon Scard   at Mapperton. (the groom's youngest brother Simon (unmarried) and Fanny Holt.
  The Bride:  Esther's age on the 1851 Census [i.e. born 1785 and her birthplace recorded as Beaminster, Dorset' would imply the Baptism of Esther White, 
   born 10th April 1784, baptised 10th April 1784, daughter of John White and his wife Mary at St. Mary's Beaminster.  However Esther's age may also imply
   she could have been a widow (descendants are advised to exercise caution in examining this aspect of their maternal lineage carefully).
   Esther would have been thirty-six at her marriage and forty-five at birth of her youngest child - considered acceptable for this era. 

   James was shown to have worked as a Fellmonger in his father's lifetime and later as an Agricultural Labourer.  James and Esther appear to have moved 
                   to several locations early in their marriage possibly for available work and where they recorded their five children; 

                                       Esther Scard baptised 6th February 1820 daughter of James & Esther at Beaminster - Father's Occupation: Sawyer (see Epilogue)
                                       Mary Scard baptised 26th August 1821 daughter of James & Esther at St. Mary's Beaminster - Father's Occupation: Sawyer (see Epilogue)
                                       James Scard baptised 18th January 1824 son of James & Hester [Esther] at Askerwell - Father's Occupation: Fellmonger.
                                       Simon Scard baptised 21st February 1826 son of James & Esther at Powerstock - Father's Occupation: Fellmonger (Dual Baptism)
                                       Elizabeth Scard baptised 21st February 1826 daughter of James & Esther at Powerstock - Father's Occupation: Fellmonger (Dual Baptism)

1818-25       Meanwhile back at Cerne at the age of twenty-six James's brother William was witness to the Will of Elizabeth Morris, a spinster of Cerne Abbas on the 
                    14th November 1818 recording his name "William Sckeard Jnr". The Will was Proved at the Archdeaconry Court Dorset in 1830 with two Codicils. 
                    The Morris Family are also linked when Elizabeth Morris is witness to the marriage of James's sister Elizabeth in 1843.  No apparent connection was 
                    found between the two families, it is thought they were good friends. 

                    In 1821 James's brother Robert was witness to the marriage of Edward Partington and Dinah Antell both of Cerne Abbas on the 27th August 1821. 
                    Witnesses Robert Scard and Sarah Partington. The relationship of the parties to Scard Family is unknown.

                    Two years later in 1823 a lease was signed by a Scard Family member of Cerne part the River's Estate comprising a messuage, yard and buildings.
                    His youngest brother Simon appears in the Rate Books at Cerne Abbas this year undoubtedly the holder of the aforementioned lease.  Whilst James's father
                     was recorded in Cerne Abbas Rate Books since 1808 and his brother William also recorded from 1812, James was not listed in the Rate Books for many years, 
                     during which time he lived in various places leaving a paper trail where their children were baptised. 
 
                    Youngest brother Simon Scard married Mary Furber by Licence on the 17th January 1825 at Cerne Abbas. At this time James' father was aged seventy-two 
                    his mother was aged sixty-nine.

1826            Eight months after the baptism of James & Esther's youngest child Elizabeth, James found himself in Dorchester Prison indicted for infringement of an
                    Excise Law.   Historically the Excise Officers in Dorset were prevalent during this decade mainly targeting the ever common smuggling rings in the
                    area.  The Prison entries record James viz; 
                             "2nd Oct 1826 - James Scard  - aged 39 - [of] Beaminster - Felmonger - married - [children] 5 - [committed by] Sir N H Nepead? Bart & Rev F Goford
                               - [crime] an offence against Exercise Laws investigations? - [height] 5' 6 1/2" - [hair] brown - [eyes] gray - [complexion] fair - [marks] very much pitted
                               with the small pox - [sentence] To be imprisoned until he pays the sum of £7 - [conduct in prison] orderly - [Discharged] 22nd March 1827
                               - Fine paid by Mr Edm [Edmund] Hedding of Bridford? by check on Brown & Elliots Bank - check sent to Mr W. M---ough [page torn], 
                               Supervisor of Excise, in his receipt" see digitised images
                                                                                     Left page  Right page

                   No detail has been found relating to 'Mr. Edmond Hedding of Bridford' who paid the fine.  It is likely that the family had managed to gather the money 
                   and that Hedding was a local agent who was employed by them to forward the money to Excise Office.  It is doubtful that any of the family would
                   have been privy to the procedure of payment or access to a cheque.  It was common to employ the services of an agent in these matters.                  

1829          In mid 1829 sadly the family mourned the death of James' brother William Scard who died prematurely at the age of thirty-nine leaving his widow
                  Phoebe of nineteen years marriage and ultimately eight young children. 
                  William 'Junr' mirrored his great grandfather who died at Cerne in 1754 in that he seems to have become ill rather suddenly and during his illness he and 
                   his family were recorded under the care of the Overseers of the Poor for the few months leading up to his death. 
                                   "William Scard of Duck Street, Cerne Abbas was buried on the 25th June 1829 aged 39"
                  At the time of William's death his widow appears to have had a child 'in utero'.   Posthumously William had two children baptised; a daughter 
                  Mary-Ann and a son Robert in a dual ceremony held at St. Mary's Cerne Abbas 12th October 1829 four months after his death.  Later Census reveal that
                  daughter Mary-was the youngest born circa 1831 and Robert born the previous year sometime in 1830.  His widow  Phoebe continued to receive alms from 
                  the Overseers of the Poor for some years after William's death. 
                   Seven days prior to Phoebe's children's' dual baptism, James's grieving father was buried at Cerne; 
                                    "William Scard  of Dorchester Road, Cerne Abbas buried 5th October 1829 aged 78"
                   William Scard [the elder] was survived his wife Margaret aged 73 of forty-nine years marriage and four of his eight children; Robert [married] aged 45, 
                   Elizabeth [married] aged 44, James [married] aged 36, Simon [married] aged thirty-two and also sixteen grandchildren issuing from his sons including 
                   eight by his recently deceased son William.

1830-2:       Several months later James himself appears in the Overseers of the Poor Records receiving seven shillings in April-May 1830.   The entry may have been 
                    payment for work  he had done for the Parish.  James was intermittently given sums ranging from 1/- up to a one off payment of £1.4s 0d in March 1832. 
                    The beginning of his troubles may fall to the first entry inclusive for the month 20th Dec 1830-17th Jan 1831: "Scard James for drawing stone 8s 6d"
                    The stone were possibly retrieved from the ruins of the nearby 'great Benadictine Monastary' aka 'Cerne Abbey' destroyed during the Reformation, which 
                     lay just outside Cerne Village.  This would have been extremely heavy work up to nine hours per day for which at a rate of six days per week, James was 
                     estimated paid a little over 4 pence a day.  It is still  possible to find some fragments of the Abbey which have beensed in the construction of houses and 
                     buildings around the village.

                                                                                                       Digitised images from Ancestry.com courtesy of Dorset Record Office 
                                              
                    No further monies were paid to James until the end of the following year. These payments were often hidden amongst other costs. Examples;
                                  Aug-Sep 1831 "Lunatic & Jury List 7/-, Jas Scard 5/- total 12/-"
                                  Nov-Dec 1831 "Scard's wife ill 5/-, Symonds, Betty 2/6 total 7/6d"  (this would be for Hester's medical expenses)
                                  Dec-Jan 1832 "Paid J. Gundey? for Jas Scard's house rent to 25th Dec £1"
                   There was also another interesting amount  for which James's children are provided shoes by the Parish in the month 6th June-4th July 1832 
                                  "Jas Scards children & for shoes as forsaid"   9. 6.  (nine shillings and six pence)
                                                                                                                    

                   James appears to have found his feet and no longer appears in the OofP subsequent Accounts investigated so far.  

                   Around 1836 James nephews Moses, Robert and Simon by Jame's brother Robert had moved to Newport, Wales where they were working as Police Officers.
                   Involved in their Duty during the Newport Riots, Moses was recorded for his compassion towards a dying rebel boy. 

1837:          James's mother Margaret Scard [nee Groves] was buried at St. Mary the Virgin, Cerne Abbas on the 24th January 1837 at the recorded age of 81 years

1842-50      Several unfortunate incidents occurred over the following eight years. 
                    In 1842 James's 14 year old son James Scard [the younger] was indicted for stealing apples with another 15year old boy William Gale of Sydling, both sent to 
                    Dorchester Prison. The date of Committal on the 8th Nov 1842, the same day both boys were delivered at the Prison, James was noted aged 14 years; 5' 3/4" 
                    in height; light brown hair, blue eyes and fair complexion. He received the sentence "Basted" by definition "Beat (someone) soundly, thrash".  
                    His co-conspirator received the sentence "Privately whipped"  Young James received instruction in Religion during his confinement and after a period 
                    of seven days he was released on the 15th Nov 1842. See images; 
                                                                                                            left page     right page

                    During the following two years either Elizabeth or her 1st cousin Elizabeth (daughter of Elizabeth's  deceased uncle William Scard) give birth to two illegitimate
                    sons in 1843 & 1844 respectively. Both infants died shortly after their birth. Elizabeth would have been aged around twenty-one at this time.  
                    Her cousin Elizabeth would have been aged around thirty-one at this time and ultimately married at Cerne in 1848.   
                    
                    Subsequently unlike her cousin, Elizabeth is whisked away immediately following the incident to resettle in busy London accompanied by her 1st cousins 
                    Martha Legg [nee Scard] whose spouse appears to have found work there and her cousin Jane Scard, both the daughters of  Elizabeth's deceased paternal 
                    uncle William Scard [the younger].  
                    Six years later Elizabeth married Andrew Cole 11th August 1850 Stephany Middlesex - Father of the Bride noted: 'James Scard' . The couple had one known child, 
                    a son Thomas.  Sometime later Elizabeth's widowed sister Mary-Ann Pearce nee Scard also moved to London, her son Charles Pearce was staying with Elizabeth 
                    and her husband during the 1871 Census. See Epilogue

                    Gradually James and Esther saw their children marry.   Simon at Stratton in 1848 and young Mary-Ann the same year.  Mary-Ann's spouse Charles Pearce was 
                    witness to her brother Simon's marriage and Simon witnessed theirs.  James and Esther remained at Cerne as did his brother Simon and his wife and also his 
                    widowed sister-in-law Phoebe with her children continuied to be supported by the Parish also lived in the village. 

1851            By 1851 James's elder  brother Robert had moved to Newport, Wales with the rest of his family to join his elder sons.  James and the rest of the family 
                    remained at Cerne.
