Dame Mary Page's Fluid



Dame Mary Page's Fluid

This is where the first case of Meig's Syndrome is buried.

Location: Bunhill Fields, London

Description: This is the tomb of Dame Mary Page, the wife of the wealthy London merchant, Gregory Page, shipwright and director of the British East India Company. She was the daughter of Thomas Trotman from London.

After bearing him four children, Mary fell ill and died at the age of 56 (4th March 1728).

The inscription on the north panel of her tomb reads: In 67 months she was tapped 66 times ... 240 gallons of water drawn without ever repining at her case or ever fearing the operation. (240 imperial gallons is about 1,100 litres).

That's a lot of fluid. It is suggested that it hints at having excess fluid drained off to treat Meig's Syndrome.
