C. T. Coote, fourth son of Richard Holmes Coote and younger brother of Holmes Coote, F.R.C.S, surgeon to St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, entered The Queen’s College, Oxford, at the age of sixteen, and graduated in classics in 1844. Elected to a fellowship at Pembroke, he turned his attention to medicine, and took the degrees of B.M. in 1850 and D.M. in 1853. He practised in London and served as physician to the Great Northern Hospital and the Western General Dispensary. His principal post was that of assistant physician and lecturer on medical jurisprudence at the Middlesex Hospital. Coote held, in addition, a Radcliffe travelling fellowship from 1849 to 1859. He was abroad, at Hyéres, at the time of his early death, which was probably caused by consumption.
