General surgeon


Born about 1849 the elder son of Frederick Yate, MRCS, LSA 1834, surgeon to Charterhouse School when it moved from London into its new quarters at Godalming in 1872. Edward Yate was educated at St Bartholomew's Hospital, where he was house physician in 1872 and was afterwards house surgeon at the Lying-in Hospital in York Road, London. He then practised with his father at Godalming, and a younger brother, Henry Wright Yate, MRCS 1879, subsequently joined the firm.

Edward Yate's name disappeared from the Medical Register and from the Medical Directory after 1906, though he appears to have died about 1900. It was retained in the College's List of Fellows until 1938.
