About Francis LeBaron, Dr.

- In the year 1694 England was at war with France, and "English trade", says Green, was all but ruined by French privateers". In that year a French vessel of this character was wrecked in Buzzards Bay, and the officers and crew, being made prisoners, were sent overland to Boston. Among the rest was Dr. Francis Le Baron, by birth a Frenchman, by religion a Huguenot, by Profession a Surgeon. On their way to Boston they stopped overnight, with their captors, at Plymouth, where Dr. Le Baron "was quartered at the house of William Barnes, near the green". "It so happened that a lady of the town had, on the day of his arrival, suffered a severe compound fracture of the leg" (as we would say: - our northern cousins call it a limb,) "which the surgeons in charge were about to amputate. Dr. Le Baron, hearing of the case, asked permission to make an examination and afterwards saved the limb." The good citizens of Plymouth, struck with such surpassing evidence of his skill, secured his pardon and persuaded him to stop among them and practice his profession, which, with the consent of Lieut. Gov. Stoughton, he did; - living there the rest of his days.
