Edward Wrench - The Story of a 19th century Derbyshire GP by Dr Carol Beardmore

This talk explores the role of Edward Wrench in doctoring Chatsworth House. He purchased the practice in Baslow in 1862 and from the beginning sought to become the doctor of choice for the Devonshire family when in residence and the numerous staff that they employed. Edward Wrench’s diaries, which exists in an unbroken run until his death in 1912 create a prism through which to explore the country house and its consumption history from a different angle.
