Details

Entered St Bartholomew's Hospital in. October, 1873, was House Surgeon to Sir William Savory, and later at the Lock Hospital, Royal Westminster Ophthalmic Hospital, and Clinical Assistant at the Children's Hospital, Great Ormond Street; he also attended the Rotunda Hospital, Dublin. He was appointed Assistant Surgeon to the West London Hospital in 1883 and was put in charge of the Skin Department. There he made great efforts in the direction of forming a School of Medicine, but without success.

He was an enthusiastic yachtsman, and, possessed of ample means, he retired from practice in 1891, gave up his house at 11 Hanover Square, and removed to Ramsgate to take up an open-air life, apparently in perfect health. But a year later he died whilst yachting at Gosport on July 4th, 1892. He was survived by his widow and one child. He was a thoroughly good fellow, loved by his many friends for his geniality.
