*CHARLES BOUTFLOWER [1782-1844], was apprenticed to his brother John, in Manchester, subsequently continuing his medical studies at the University of Edinburgh. In 1801, he became surgeon to the 40th [then the 2nd Somersetshire and now South Lancashire] Regiment, serving in the West Indies and South America, and then in Spain during the Peninsular War. He retired from service in 1815, practising as a surgeon in Colchester for nineteen years before retiring to Liverpool. He became a Town Councillor and eventually took charge of the drainage works, during which work he contracted typhoid, leading to his death in 1844.
