Zachariah Green

Zachariah Green (May 15, 1817January 22, 1897) was a renowned philanthropist and healer.

He was born in Hucknall, Nottinghamshire, England.

Zachariah Green's charitable work earned him a widespread reputation, he is even reputed to have treated the Lord Mayor of Nottingham. [http://www.homepage.ntlworld.com/g6nhy.uk/green.htm./] As payment for his services as a healer he demanded only the cost of ointments and medical supplies. As a result of this philanthropy, he became popular with the less affluent inhabitants of Nottinghamshire's industrial towns and villages, who would otherwise have not had access to good medical care.

After his death, his charitable work was continued into the coal mining era by his son, Samuel (1851 - 1915) grandson, Zachariah (1892 - 1932) and granddaughter, Mary (1888 - 1980).
