John Abernethy (1764 - 1831), surgeon and teacher. In the late 1780s he began to lecture on anatomy at his house in Bartholomew Close, and speedily attracted a large class, the numbers of which were swollen when Dr. Marshall, the most popular anatomical teacher in the city, ceased to lecture. Abernethy's success was one of the causes which induced the governors of St. Bartholomew's to build a lecture theatre, where in 1791 he began to lecture on anatomy, physiology, and surgery, and thus became the founder of the medical school attached to that ancient hospital. About this time he was himself a diligent attendant at the lectures of John Hunter, with whom he had also private conferences on scientific matters, and whose influence greatly determined the bent of his mind. In 1796 he was elected a fellow of the Royal Society. In 1814 he was appointed to lecture on anatomy and physiology at the College of Surgeons (there was no regular professorship), and held the office till 1817. His lectures were mainly devoted to explaining the Hunterian museum, then lodged in the college, and to expounding the views of John Hunter, of whose theory of life Abernethy constituted himself an ardent champion. After Charles William Pegler (1803 - 1832).

He then was imprisoned until his release was ordered in 1640 by the Long Parliament.

Dr Ralph Bathusrt (1620-1704) was an English theologian and physician. He was ordained in 1644 but his prospects were disrupted by the English Civil War and he turned to medicine. He was part of the original group of Oxford experimentalists attached to the Royal Society of London, and later crossed circles with physicians and was involved in the dissection of Ann Green. During the First Anglo-Dutch War of 1652, he worked in practical medicine alongside Daniel Whistle, who was in charge of wounded naval personnel. In 1660, with the English Restoration, he turned back to the Church, and in 1663 he was elected Fellow of the Royal Society, and a year later was made President of Trinity College. In 1670 he was Dean of Wells Cathedral and for three years, from 1673, he was Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford.
