Details

Practised in Church Street, Lancaster. He had among his apprentices Richard Owen (qv), transferred to him in 1823 by Joseph Seed, who had become a naval surgeon. Harrison's pupils had access to the County Gaol, and carried out post-mortem examinations, which served to interest Owen in anatomy, as is mentioned by Flower in the Dictionary of National Biography (sv Owen, Sir Richard).
