In Your Area has published an article from Tiverton Museum giving an insight into a Tiverton Victorian midwife called Jane Chorley, which you can read here.
Tucked away in the stores of Tiverton Museum of Mid Devon Life we have a wonderful handwritten bound volume titled ‘Mrs Jane Chorley’s Book’. This is a ledger kept by Jane Chorley of 28 Leat Street, Tiverton, where she records her attendance at local births from 1875 through to 1907.
