11143Most prolific mother everMrs. Vassilyeva69 peopleRussia, ShuyaThe greatest officially recorded number of children born to one mother is 69, to the wife of Feodor Vassilyev (b. 1707–c.1782), a peasant from Shuya, Russia. In 27 confinements she gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets and four sets of quadruplets.Numerous contemporaneous sources exist, which suggest that this seemingly improbably and statistically unlikely story is true. The case was reported to Moscow by the Monastery of Nikolsk on 27 Feb 1782, which had recorded every birth. It is noted that, by this time, only two of the children who were born in the period c. 1725–65 failed to survive their infancy.The Gentleman's Magazine (1783, 53, 753) recounts: "In an original letter now before me, dated St Petersburg, Aug 13, 1782, O. S. Feodor Wassilief [sic], aged 75, a peasant, said to be now alive and in perfect health, in the Government of Moscow, has had– By his first wife:4 x 4 = 167 x 3 = 21 16 x 2 = 32----------27 births 69 childrenBy his second wife:6 x 2 = 122 x 3 = 6 ---------8 births 18 children"In all, 35 births, 87 children, of which 84 are living and only three buried. . . The above relation, however astonishing, may be depended upon, as it came directly from an English merchant at St Petersburg to his relatives in England, who added that the peasant was to be introduced to the Empress."In Saint Petersburg Panorama, Bashutski, 1834, the author notes that:"In the day of 27 February 1782, the list from Nikolskiy monastery came to Moscow containing the information that a peasant of the Shuya district, Feodor Vassilyev, married twice, had 87 children. His first wife in 27 confinements gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets and four sets of quadruplets. His second wife in eight confinements gave birth to six pairs of twins and two sets of triplets. F. Vassilyev was 75 at that time with 82 of his children alive."And the Lancet (1878) refers to a twin study carried out by the French Academy and:"Apropos of the enquiry, the Committee of the Academy recall an account of a quite extraordinary fecundity that was published by M. Hermann in his "Travaux Statistiques de la Russie," for Fedor Vassilet [sic]. . . who, in 1782, was aged 75 years, had had, by two wives, 87 children."

11153Oldest man to swim the English ChannelRoger AllsoppUnited Kingdom, Dover30 August 2011The oldest person to swim the English Channel is Roger Allsopp (UK, b. 6 April 1941) who crossed from Shakespeare beach, Dover, UK, to the bay of Calais, France in 17 hr 51 min 19 sec aged 70 years 4 months on 30 August 2011.Roger Allsopp started his swim at 8 am and arrived in France just before 2 am. It was exactly 5 years to the day and at exactly the same time that Roger completed his first Channel swim.He swam non-stop for the entire time, receiving a sugar / energy feed every half hour - a bottle on a string which was thrown out to him, he would catch it, drink it in about 10 seconds and carry on swimming, the bottle would then be reeled back on to the boat. We communicated with him mainly with a whistle ie. if he was getting too far or too close from the boat and at feeding time.The water was slightly choppy when he started his swim but then it calmed down throughout the day. Unfortunately the sun never came out and the water temperature hoovered around 17 degrees. So Roger had to generate heat thus using up energy. His safety crew were on a small boat shadowing him, but huge ships and ferries kept cutting across the sea and it was very impressive to see Roger swim next to these industrial monsters.The last 2 hours were really the toughest. First of all, it was night time therefore totally pitch black, with only the Calais lights in the distance. At this stage, Roger was really suffering and mentally finding it very difficult. Originally Roger was heading for the Calais lighthouse but because he was slowing down, he 'missed' the tide which meant the current pulled him away thus adding an extra 2 to 3 hours to his swim.Roger reached the French shores at the bay of Calais just before 2 am. He was then helped back on to the boat and after a 3 hour journey arrived at the Dover marina at 5 am.Roger's Channel swim was in aid of cancer research.
