Donkey Milligan

Henry Milligan, invariably known as Donkey Milligan, was probably the most prominent of the donkey-chair proprietors who operated in Ventnor around the turn of the last century, regularly taking nursing home patients and other invalids on outings. He had taken over the business founded by his father in 1894. A carpenter by trade, Henry had worked at the Royal National Hospital and at Steephill Castle before in later years becoming a jobbing gardener and also verger at St. Margaret’s Church, Lowtherville.
