Abstract

This neglected genius, who had one of the most brilliant intellects of the seventeenth century, may be included in the list of those who helped in the growth of pediatric knowledge chiefly on account of his contributions on rickets. His family was an old one, living at Bree, in Cornwall, but he himself was born in the Parish of St. Dunstan in the West, in Fleet Street, London, in May, 1643.

He was later elected to a fellowship in All Soul's College and was graduated Bachelor of Civil Law in 1665, and D. C. L. in 1670. He was given the privilege of studying physic, which exempted him from taking holy orders. He went to London, but was never elected to the College of Physicians. He
