Chapter Summary

The Christopherson name surfaces frequently in North Lancashire. The early Christophersons were blacksmiths, tanners and small farmers, but we know of one, Bryan Christopherson of nearby Penny Bridge, who was involved in the slave trade in 1752. Tanner Brian was second in a family of twelve. When he married Mary High of nearby Walney Island, two sons, Thomas and Brian were all that they could achieve. The church Reverend Brian took over in 1883, King Charles the Martyr, Falmouth, was built between 1662 and 1664. Jack continued to follow in his father's footsteps with a first-class Cambridge university education. His was a well-rounded science and medical degree, pre-clinical only, as Cambridge at that time had no clinical courses.

Keywords: Clergyman; Dr. J.B. Christopherson; Falmouth; Jack; Tanner Brian
