Death by Vaccine

The UK regulator has approved the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine in children aged 12-15, saying it is safe and effective in this age group and the benefits outweigh any risks.


Ah, effective. We have been told the jabs are 90% or more effective – calculated from first trial data. But this is the flattering Relative Risk Reduction figure (RRR). The manufacturers don’t want you to know the Absolute Risk Reduction (ARR). In an article published in The Lancet this figure was 1.3% for AstraZeneca-Oxford, 1.2% for Moderna-NIH and 0.84% for Pfizer-BioNTech. I doubt millions would have clamoured for a shot in the arm if these numbers had been the ones promoted.

Another metric that is derived from the ARR calculations is the “number needed to vaccinate” (NNV) in the whole population.  For Pfizer-BioNTech this comes out at 117 people needing to be jabbed to prevent one unhappy encounter with Covid-19. Put another way, 116 people who receive a shot will gain no benefit from it – but will have to take a chance on an adverse reaction, up to and including saying a final farewell to loved ones (if allowed).

Every evening the BBC gives its listeners the day’s Covid numbers for positive PCR tests and deaths within 28 days of a test. I would be interested to hear a breakdown of the death numbers – into the vaxxed and unvaxxed. People do get Covid after being “vaccinated” and they also die. In the latest Yellow Card Report (run date 26/5/2021) the number of deaths associated with the jab is now 1,253. We will probably never know if the jab was the cause of death because it appears that these cases are not being investigated.

Although GPs and Hospitals in the UK should report all instances of adverse vaccine reactions it would undoubtedly affect Big Pharma’s bottom line if they did so. VAERS, the American equivalent to the UK’s Yellow Card, is said to be receiving reports of only one to 10 percent of reactions experienced by recipients of the Covid jabs. Some hospital management boards are forbidding nurses to document reactions. And many nurses and other frontline workers are refusing a mandatory jab, even when threatened with dismissal for so doing.

The UK Column’s presentation of Yellow Card data begins with the run on 7 February, by which time 326 deaths had been linked to AstraZeneca, Pfizer and “Unidentified” vaccines. (Moderna joined the list in mid-April). Yellow Card weeks are not all 7 days long but I have matched its offerings with those of Johns Hopkins Covid-19 deaths in the UK (Worldometer).

The figures are presented below, starting at UK Column’s Week 2 (8 to 14 February).

In Week 15, the split is 38% of deaths associated with the Jab and 62% with Covid-19. Attempts have been made to separate those dying with a positive PCR and no comorbidities The UK Column a while back presented a figure for such deaths from Covid which was, if I recall, about 25% of the total. I don’t know if the under-reporting of Adverse Reactions is as great in the UK as it is in the USA. A very rough calculation of deaths associated with the vaccines in each country as a percentage of total population suggests that reporting in the UK is about 30% higher. With these two indications in mind I have revised the death figures for the last fourteen weeks of available Yellow Card data, doubling the vaccine related deaths and cutting the reported Covid-19 deaths within 28 days of a positive PCR test by 25%.

Although these revisions are modest they raise the current share of vax related deaths to over 60%.

The UK Covid deaths have bottomed out for the summer but will surely rise again in the autumn going into winter. Deaths related to the vaccines are likely to rise too whether the rollout continues “successfully” or not.

The regime and its well-funded propaganda machine are not good with figures. The legacy media last weekend was reporting that “hundreds of people” had gathered in London for a Freedom March. The highest sensible estimate was “a million”. Why not take the average and say 500,000. A great crowd. More of us should just say No.

His Wife, Agnes

Husband One

FamilySearch Shared Tree

Husband Two

Husband Three is Cdr Edmund Henry Outram 1858-1937.

…and of AGNES, his wife, died June 3rd 1939, aged 70.

The grave in St Oswald’s, Filey is sadly undistinguished for a man who was awarded a DSO  for services in the Royal Navy Reserve during the First World War – a rectangle of granite kerb enclosing a patch of packed earth, gravel, grass and weeds.

I described Commander/Captain OUTRAM as an “old sea dog” in an earlier post that introduced the only son he had with Agnes, killed at the age of 21 in that terrible conflict. I mentioned that the family of three was proving difficult to trace but that I would continue searching. It has been a while…

You may have noticed that Cdr Edmund H. Outram, resting eternally in Filey, was born in in the same year as Husband One. The only source attached to Edmund Edward is the 1881 Canada Census and the page image offers just “Edmund” – no middle name or initial. Here is Edmund Henry’s Probate information.

It is beginning to look like another case of mistaken identity, both men seemingly born in Sydney, Cape Breton. The 1859 birth year of Husband One’s Agnes is ten years earlier than that of Edmund Henry’s Agnes – 1869 is indicated by the death registration and Monumental Inscription.. Agnes One’s parents are given as John Young and Jane Wallace Craig on the Shared Tree but there is a source for a two year-old Agnes Young with different parents in the 1871 Canada Census, residing in Sydney…

The 1871 census also records a six year-old Agnes Young (Agnes Two?) in Nova Scotia but 400 kms away in Halifax. So, we may have three individuals of each sex, mixed up.

One of the men, Husband Two, died a bachelor. Edmund Healy Outram, Vicar of Ropsley, is single when the 1911 England & Wales Census is taken, and there is no mention of a wife in a newspaper account of his funeral in April 1929. One of the mourners attending the service was a cousin, Edmund Outram. Was it Husband One or Husband Three? See their relationship with Edmund Healy, the unmarried husband, on the Shared Tree.

I have not been able to find a birth registration for young Edmund, whose life ended on the first day of the Battle of the Somme. Father Edmund’s address in 1937 was the same as that noted in the CWGC record – 41 West Avenue.

The value of the Effects left by Agnes is about £109,000 in “today’s money”, compared with her husband’s £200,000. This is small beer compared to the value of Great Western Railway shares transmitted by Julia Maclean Outram to Henry Edmund (sic) Outram, Emilia Julia Evenett (widow) and Charles Alexander Outram. £154,893 3s. 0d in 1930 is worth over £7 million now. This shines a melancholy light on the grave plot in Filey churchyard – and upon the thrown away life of young Edmund.

A Mainstream Media Disconnect

TV News in India recently reported the Modi Government’s plea to social media platforms in the West to remove “Indian Variant” references from their platforms – because it doesn’t exist. Oh, yes it does. In the UK the notorious mutant is more than likely to provide the excuse the UK regime needs to break the promise to release Brits from all lockdown restrictions in three weeks time. The BBC this morning was preparing us for the Great Disappointment.

A Sense of Belonging

I wrote about John MABBOTT in July 2011. The Looking at Filey blog is still inaccessible at The British Library’s Web Archive so I offer it below, in full, with some comments inserted in square brackets.

The stone has begun a glacial topple from the vertical but its position by the path in the churchyard guarantees that most people passing by will notice John MABBOTT – and perhaps wonder about the “of Filey” beneath the name.

In 1881 the census enumerator caught John with his wife Ruth at 80 Ashton Old Road, Openshaw, his occupation Herbalist & Patent Medicine Dealer. He was 57 years old and Ruth 56. Any children they may have had would have flown the nest.

Ten years later John was in Filey with another wife, Mary Elizabeth, eight years his junior. Checking Free BMD I found that Ruth, born MASON, died about June 1882 in Chorlton Registration District, which includes Openshaw. It would appear that John had no family to keep him in Lancashire because about eighteen months later he married a former Governess, Mary Elizabeth BIRD, in Selby. In 1881 Mary Elizabeth had been staying in Filey with a much older cousin, Mary BIRD, at 14 Hope Street.

Mary BIRD described herself as a ‘proprietress of houses’ at the 1861census and in 1881 as a ‘retired milliner’. Her retirement came to an end a few weeks later and perhaps Mary Elizabeth was a beneficiary of the substantial estate.

In 1882 or ’83, then, there were two bereft and maybe lonely people whose paths unaccountably crossed. Whether it was for love or convenience John and Mary Elizabeth married in Selby and set themselves up in one of cousin Mary’s houses in Filey. They enjoyed almost ten years together. Can we be sure they were happy? I think the “of Filey” is a clue. John seems to have been a wanderer – the 1841 to 1871 censuses might confirm this – but maybe his last years in Filey were his happiest and he asked Mary Elizabeth to let everyone know this by implication on his headstone. It is one thing to feel comfortable in a community though and another to be accepted by it. One wonders if old Filey family tongues wagged disparagingly when they saw the inscription. 

According to the Census John was born in Sleaford, Lincolnshire.  I haven’t found any other sort of record to confirm this but I did happen upon a PDF of burials in that town which prompted an intriguing thought or two. (Well done Sleaford Town Council for making this information freely available on the web.) [The URL for this PDF doesn’t work now.]

The first Mabbott on the list is Alma, aged 0 in 1859 when John was 37. Ruko Inkermann MABBOTT died the following year before reaching his (her?) first birthday. Other tiny Mabbott infants died in 1862, 1865 and 1867. And the father of at least some of these babies was almost certainly a John MABBOTT who married Mary POWDREL (or POWDIEL) on 18th October 1855 (Family Search England Marriages 1538 – 1973 Source Film 989862; Free BMD Dec Q Sleaford 7a 835).

It may not have been Filey’s John though. On the 30th May 1866 another John MABBOTT, born 1822, was buried in Sleaford and there had only been one of these Johns in the town at the1861 census.

Thirteen Mabbott burials are recorded in Sleaford in a hundred years. The modal age is 0, the median 3 and the average just 26 years so our John did very well to reach seventy, though I guess the herbal remedies and patent medicines helped.

After her husband’s death Mary Elizabeth moved back south, close to the places where she was born and married. She died in or near Selby on 22nd June 1915 and although she is remembered on the headstone in St Oswald’s churchyard it isn’t clear that she is actually buried there. [A record of her burial in St Oswald’s churchyard was found later.]

I have put John MABBOTT and his wives on the Filey Tree even though it is unlikely any other family groups will ever connect to them. I think it’s what he would have wanted. I have also opened a Wiki Page for him with blank tables for 1841 to 1871 census information that will help fill the gaps in his life journey.

[The “Filey Tree” was a database briefly hosted by FamilySearch but it disappeared in the major revamp of the Shared Tree some years ago. The “Wiki Page” is no longer easily accessible online. I offered some thoughts on the 1851 census last Friday ( John Mabbott’s First Marriage). In 1861, John “Mobbett” is visiting John BOWNS and family at Earls Terrace, Newton in Makerfield, given age 37, married, working as a Smith, birthplace “Sleaford, Lancashire” in transcription (RG09 2898 f99 p29). On census night ’61, Emma “Mabbott, widow”, age 39, “Cotton L Weaver”, birthplace Manchester, is a lodger at 55 Mulberry Street, Hulme, Chorlton (RG09 2898 f99 p29). In 1871, at West View, Openshaw, John heads a household containing second wife Ruth Mason nee GREEN and two of her three surviving children, Amos (16) and Martha (12). As the eldest, Mary at 19 was possibly in service somewhere in Manchester. (There is a Mary Mason of this age in a Manchester Prison but the receiving ledger gives her birthplace as York.)]

A Jarring Mason

For about eleven years, John MABBOTT was stepfather to the three surviving children of his second wife Ruth MASON (nee GREEN). Of the three, I have so far found that only the boy, Amos, married. And while adding some sources to his family on the Shared Tree today I happened upon a particularly egregious case of mistaken identity.

Though four decades separate their births, they both marry Mary Ann FARROW and father Clara Annie. The FamilySearch ‘system’ is aware that this is a nonsense and issues a warning on Amos the Younger’s record.

I thought this problem would disappear if I ended the relationship with Mary Ann but it didn’t. Only the date of the spurious marriage was removed. More radical surgery is required – but I think I’ll leave it for “family” to do.
