If someone with one lunatic boarding received another see John Jacksonthe house needed a licence. If a licensed house with two insane boarders, lost one, the house would cease to be licensed. The houses with more than one lunatic needed to be licensed, but the kind of care might not differ from that in a single house.
In the nineteenth century and earlier some people provided services relating to this whole range of provision. For example, a physician see Morison and Seymour for example might visit at home were a person was confined by relatives.
The same physician might recommend a paid attendant keeper, nurse who would keep guard over the patient. Alternatively the physician might recommend someone who would arrange single care in lodgings or might recommend a madhouse. In the case of attendants, single houses and madhouses, there would be a variation of financial arrangements between the physician and the attendants and the house.
Often, the physician would receive a regular retainer for making recommendations. Other words used for paid attendants in the early nineteenth century were keeper and nurse.
Nurse was only used for a female attendant or keeper. It should be noted that there were many non-paupers received at similar charges to paupers, and maintained in similar conditions. Paupers were poor but non-paupers were not necessarily rich!
In the midth century all workhouse asylums and most county asylums were exclusively occupied by paupers, although a few county asylums made some provision for others. Most licensed houses did not take paupers.
A novella is a text of written, fictional, narrative prose normally longer than a short story but shorter than a novel, somewhere between 17, and 40, words.. The English word "novella " derives from the Italian novella, feminine of novello, which means "new".The novella is a common literary genre in several European languages. The concept of the flâneur, the casual wanderer, observer and reporter of street-life in the modern city, was first explored, at length, in the writings of Baudelaire. The long-awaited final volume of William Manchester's legendary biography of Winston Churchill. Spanning the years of , THE LAST LION picks up shortly after Winston Churchill became Prime Minister-when his tiny island nation stood alone against the overwhelming might of Nazi Germany.
Only a minority the pauper houses took both or exceptionally only paupers. The pauper houses, however, included the very largest, and as a result over half the lunatics in licensed houses were paupers.
Hospitals received relatively few paupers. Who could be a pauper? In relation to lunacy or illness the potential for being maintained out of public funds was greater than in relation to straightforward poverty.
By section 18 a JP would sign a lunatic as a pauper who was "either in receipt of relief, or in such circumstances as to require relief for his proper care" and "for the purposes of this section" "a person who is visited by a medical officer of the union, at the expense of the union" was counted as in receipt of relief.
The legal process that made someone a chancery lunatic was expensive and generally invoked in connection with the preservation of property. Single houses were one of the most expensive forms of confinement.
Although there is no logical reason why the term single lunatic should not be applied to insane relatives of the poor confined, or just living, at home; in most of the material I have read the text tends to suggest affluence when this term is used.
