William Marsden's Yorkshire family, 1749-1922.

Author information



William Marsden (1796-1867), a Yorkshireman, founded two major London hospitals. We know little of his family background, about which his only biography gives a highly inaccurate account. It suggests his family were landowners and gentlemen farmers. Although their origins were more humble, some at least of his Yorkshire relatives prospered-through gardening, banking, manufacturing and even medicine. This paper presents information on four generations of Yorkshire Marsdens.
