Scarborough ‘spaw’: The early years

Why was there such a long delay between Mrs Thomasin Farrer’s “discovery” of the spa spring in the 1620s and Dr Robert Wittie’s printed promotion of it in the 1660s? If the doctor’s propaganda was historically accurate and news of the medicinal properties of Scarborough’s mineral water gradually spread from the town, to the Ridings and, by 1660, to the nation at large, then the same question remains unanswered: why did it take so long?

Dr Wittie’s Water-Works

Bible-reading Christians had plenty of reasons for their fear of the sea: Old Testament references to it were negative and ominous. In Genesis, the waters were “the great abyss” out of which God created the solid, safe and fruitful land. The Garden of Eden had a river, but no sea; and the great flood, which drowned the earth and everything on it, was an instrument of God’s punishment of his people. In its unfathomable, dark depths, the sea harboured huge monsters such as the whale which swallowed disobedient Jonah.
