Biographical Notes Surgeon who, in 1816, was resident in Argyll Street, Soho, London. He provided two (at least) of the sketches that served as source for aquatints printed in Anne Plumptre's Narrative of a Residence in Ireland (1817). He also contributed the text of chapter XV (on the basalt formations in north Antrim); as ‘a man of science, a member of the Linnaean and other learned Societies’ he was deemed by Anne Plumptre to be more competent to write on the subject. He was also a Fellow of the Geological Society (elected 1812) and the Royal College of Surgeons. In 1821 he published A view of the structure, functions, and disorders of the stomach and alimentary organs.
