Johann Peter Scholl 1710 Dec

Johann Peter Scholl was born 10 December 1710 in Graben Germany. His parents are Hans Georg Scholl and Elisabetha Weidmann. Peter was their first child. There are no other records found for Peter so we assume he was still born.

Life expectancy
Average life expectancy at birth for English people in the late 16th and early 17th centuries was just under 40 – 39.7 years. However, this low figure was mostly due to the high rate of infant and child mortality; over 12% of all children born would die in their first year. With the hazards of infancy behind them, the death rate for children slowed but continued to occur. A cumulative total of 36% of children died before the age of six, and another 24% between the ages of seven and sixteen. In all, of 100 live births, 60 would die before the age of 16. A man or woman who reached the age of 30 could expect to live to 59. [Thomson Gale, 'Infant Mortality' (1998)]
