His daughter, Miss S A Steet, writing to the Standard in 1910, two months before her father's death, said that he was the senior Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons, the oldest London medical practitioner, and that he was enjoying tolerably good health, with his memory quite unimpaired, and fond of telling anecdotes of pre-chloroform days. He died on Nov 17th, 1910. His photograph is in the Fellows' Album, dated 1867.
