Hi all

If you want to know about Hibbert/Hebbert, Debs is the one to ask (Debra A on this site).

Oh, yes! Mr Hibbert looks a bit apprehensive!

Could you please point us in some useful directions, Debra? I don't know why I didn't think of you in the first place! (Did Hibbert leave Britain at any time? There seem to be many, many Hibberts in Australia, Canada and the US.)

Hi Debra,

In the photo of Hibbert/Hebbert (?) you put out, I notice he is wearing a suit, tie, and vest, but there is some kind of wire cord around this throat which looks like part of some earphone type device (like what we'd find on an old transistor radio). It's not plugged into his ears, and the photo is from about 1918, so it has nothing to do with transistor radios. Do you have any idea what it is?

Jeff

I thought it was an eyeglasses lanyard.

Maybe even a monocle.

Yes, Rosella. He went to the US before 1899 (British Medical Registers for 1899 give a c/o address in Boston IIRC) he then went on to Canada where he married his second wife.
I posted some details from that marriage certificate on the boards a few years back with a sample of his signature to compare to Dr Bond's notes. It looked very much to me like Hebbert wrote Bond's notes, as concluded by S G Ryan in his articles about Mary Kelly's heart. This would have been standard practice as Hebbert was Dr Bond's assistant and would have taken notes while Bond worked.

Hebbert spent some time as a ships' doctor according to the A to Z before ending up in Australia where he died in 1926. The photograph I posted comes from Merchant Seamans' Records and was in Hebbert's record for 1918. He was described as a Brit surgeon b June 1862. His birthdate was correct in day and month but he'd obviously shaved 5 years off his age-which tallies with later records in Australia I believe.

Hi Jeff
I think GUT is probably correct-it does look like a spectacle or monacle lanyard. I did wonder at first if it was a hearing aid. One of the early box types that hung around the neck.
The correct spelling of his name is Hebbert but the name is so often mis-spelled that one has to be creative when looking for records!

I did think of hearing aid, but would not expect it to go around his neck, it looks like it is goes right around.

Thank you so, so much, Debra.

So he did go off overseas before the next census and I was looking in the A-Z under Hibbert! How stupid! It seems Dr Hebbert was a demonstrator of anatomy at the Westminster Hospital in 1889 and in private practice in Nottingham in 1892. A professor in Montreal, very swank! He didn't marry apparently, and died in Melbourne. A small world!
