Biographical entry Garton, William (1850 - 1907)

MRCS July 26th 1871; FRCS Dec 20th 1875; LSA 1871; MB CM Edin 1875; MD 1877.

18 March 1907
General surgeon


Son of William Garton, of St Helen's, Lancs. Studied medicine at Liverpool, London, Edinburgh, and Paris. He entered St Thomas's in 1869, was House Surgeon, House Physician, and Resident Accoucheur. At Edinburgh he was President of the Royal Medical Society. Later he was Resident Clinical Assistant at the Hospital for Consumption, Brompton. After that he practised successively at Hardshaw Street, St Helen's, at Southport, at Aughton, Ormskirk, and Liverpool Terrace, West Kensington. He removed to Hurst Lodge, Wellington Road South, Hounslow, shortly before his death on March 18th, 1907.

Foster's Alumni Oxonienses gives: "Garton, William, only son of William of St Helen's, Lancashire, armiger. Matriculated from Brazenose College, 25th May, 1853, aged 19." He cannot, therefore, be identified with William Garton (1850-1907). No William Garton was elected a Radcliffe Travelling Fellow, as is stated in the obituary.
