Lives of the fellows

Richard Dennison

b.? d.?
MD Edin(1775) LRCP(1796)

Richard Dennison, M.D., was born in Norfolk, and, after a good preliminary education, commenced the study of medicine under Mr. William Donne, a distinguished practitioner at Norwich, and one of the surgeons to the Norfolk and Norwich hospital; after which he proceeded to Edinburgh, where he graduated doctor of medicine 12th June, 1775 (D.M.I. de Vasorum Irritabilitate). He then settled at Stafford, practised there for several years, and was physician to the County General infirmary. Removing to London, and being admitted a Licentiate of the College of Physicians 9th January, 1796, he devoted himself to midwifery, and enjoyed for several years the best practice in that department in the city. The date of his death has thus far escaped my research.
