Scotter Village

Whats Happening and Where

History Page

In 1890 Scotter lost both doctors, Robert Eminson Senior and Robert Eminson Junior, when they became ill and died as a result of attending patients in the pleuro-pneumonia epidemic of that year.

Dr. Thomas Benjamin Franklin Eminson followed his father and older brother as our village doctor. His patients knew him as 'Doctor Tommy' and he served the community for over 50 years.

Doctor Tommy was interested in local history and became a published author.  It seems that every Christmas he would write an article about the past year.  One from 1939 survives.

 

 

SCOTTER WAR MEMORIAL


Scotter memorial is an obilisk of Portland Stone situated in the middle of The Green in the center of the village. It was unvieled in 1921 to commemorate the Thirteen men who died and the eighty who served in and survived the great war. Sadly eight more names had to be added for the men who lost their lives in World War II.
