1902 26/4 (local newspaper):
William Edwards of the Rock Estate, Cherry Hinton, applied for an exemption certificate from vaccination for his child, William. He had an exemption before and was more firmly convinced that vaccination was not required. His first child died through it and, if small pox broke out at Cherry Hinton, he would not, unless forced by law, consent to his child being vaccinated. If there were a loophole of escape from it he would not have the child done, if it cost him every stick of furniture he had got. The exemption was granted.
