Lives of the fellows

Walter Cromer

b.? d.c.1547
MD FRCP(1530)

Walter Cromer, M.D. – Admitted a Fellow of the College 11th April, 1530, Elect 1541, Censor 1544. He was dead in 1547, for in that year I meet with the following record: “In locum defuncti Doctoris Cromer suffectus Elector est Johannes Fryar.”

Dr. Cromer was, I believe, physician to Henry VIII, for, in conjunction with Dr. Chambre, Sir William Butts, and Dr. Ang, he drew up the MS. now in the British Museum (Sloane MS. No. 1047) of medicines for the King’s use.
