Thomas D’Oylie, MD, was descended from an old family long resident in Oxfordshire. In 1563 he was elected probationer fellow of Magdalen College, Oxford; and after taking his degrees in arts, AB 24th July, 1564, AM 21st October, 1569, and the bachelorship in physic (anno 1571), he went abroad, and proceeded MD at Basle. Returning to England, he settled in London; was admitted a Licentiate of the College of Physicians 21st May, 1585; a Candidate, 28th September, 1586; and a Fellow, the last day of February, 1588. He was incorporated at Oxford on his doctor’s degree 18th December, 1592. I meet with him as Censor in 1593, 1596, and 1598. He died in March, 1602-3, and was buried on the 11th of that month in the Church of St Bartholomew the Less, in Smithfield. The burial register styles him doctor of physicke to this hospital. He was physician to St Bartholomew’s Hospital. Wood tells us that “he had a chief hand in a book entitled Bibliotheca Hispanica containing a grammar and dictionary in Spanish, English, and Latin; Lond., 4to., 1591, which was published by Rich. Percyvall, gent., who had another hand in it.”
