Earliest recorded caul bearer, Antonius Diadumenianus featured on a Roman coin.

 (born 0n September, 19, 208 AD)

 ...

"A lass if born in June with a caul
Will wed, hev bairns & rear 'em all.
But a lass if born with a caul in July,
Will loose her caul & young will die.
Every month beside luck comes with a caul
If safe put by,
If lost she may cry:
For ill luck on her will fall.
For man it's luck - be born when he may -
It is safe be kept ye mind,
But if lost it be he'll find
Ill-deed his lot for many a day"

(Fairfax-Blakeborough, 1923).

It is the pleasure of Caul Bearers United to be the first caul bearer website to present historical documentation of the caul, excerpted from a medical research journal which is stored in the Yale Medical University library.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The following excerpts are from "The Social History of the Caul" by **Thomas R. Forbes.  They are directly copied from Dr. Forbes' Journal, and include numbered references to his bibliography, which also appears below.

These are unbiased accounts of the caul throughout history, and do not necessarily reflect any particular belief system, or the direct experience of any past or present caul bearers.

(We also find it particularly astonishing yet perfectly befitting that it was a caul bearer, Jade Lee Wolf, who located this information.  Hats off, and a big thank you to Jade!)
