In Reply to: "Inmate" - St.John's Hospital by Janet K of 2633

The original definition of "inmate", was simply a person living with others in the same building. Only later did the word become associated with people like prisoners.
My guess is that these were simply employees of the Hospital, who probably lived on the Hospital grounds.
