[S211] Parish Records, England, UK, (Church of England), Ful-John2, Section 1., Great Saxham Parish Records; Marriage License indicates that he was formBramford, Middlesex, UK, howerver Bramford is a town in Suffolk, UK;there is no Bramford, Middlesex, UK. The birth date was estimated fromthe fact that he would have been aged 21 when he was admitted to theBarber and Surgeons Company (Guild) in 1593.; Ful-John2, Section 1.

[S227] Research Notes and Documents from England, Author: Ifo from Documents from England, Ful-John1., Info was obtained from the original document: Film: Ms 5265/1; from theGuildhall Library, London. Freedom Admissions to the Barber Surgeons’Company.They are one of the London Livery Companies.

      Walter Cole was admitted to the Barber Surgeon’s Company (Guild) on 8May 1593. We know that Walter Cole was a Barber Chirurgeon as stated inhis Will dated Aug 13, 1652 and we also know from his marriage documentthat his birth name was likely Randall.
      The word Chirurgeon is a medieval term from which the modern “Surgeon”is derived. The 16th and 17th century’s profession of Barber Surgeonrequired the apprentice to live with a full member of the Barber SurgeonGuild, for seven years while being taught the trade.
      The Master (Guild member) was responsible for giving him food andclothing throughout the term of the apprenticeship.
      After the apprenticeship, Randall (Walter) Cole was admitted as aFreeman Member of the Barber Surgeon Company (we have a copy of thedocument).
      TheBarber Surgeonwas one of the most commonmedicalpractitionersofmedieval Europe, generally charged with looking after soldiersduringor after abattle. In this era,surgerywas not generally conducted byphysicians, but bybarber-[surgeons].
      Formal recognition of their skills (in England at least) goes back to1540, when theFellowship of Surgeons(who existed as a distinctprofession, but were still not "Doctors/Physicians" for reasonsincluding that, as a trade, they were trained by apprenticeship ratherthan academically) merged with theCompany of Barbers, a Londonliverycompany, to form theCompany of Barber-Surgeons.
      However, the trade was gradually put under pressure by the medicalprofession and in 1745, the surgeons split from theBarbers'Company(which still exists) to form theCompany of Surgeons. In 1800aRoyal Charterwas granted to this company and theRoyal College ofSurgeons in London came into being (later it was renamed to cover all ofEngland – equivalent Colleges exist forScotland andIrelandas well asmany of the old UK colonies, e.g.Canada). [per wiki].
