G. F. Elliott was educated at Trinity College, Dublin. Having taken the degrees of B.A. and M.B. in 1855, he spent the first eight years of his career as an assistant surgeon in the Royal Navy. He served in the Chinese War, being present at the capture of the Taku forts and the siege of Canton, and on board H.M.S. Samson during the blockade of the Baltic in the Crimean War. On leaving the Navy he lived for a short time at Stamford and held the appointment of physician to the Stamford and Rutland Hospital. He moved in 1866 to Hull to take up the lectureship on medicine at the Hull School of Medicine and shortly afterwards was elected physician to the Infirmary, a post that he retained till his death thirty-nine years later. He was given the Oxford D.M. degree, comitatis causa, in 1867. Elliott was a reticent man whose only relaxation was his annual fortnight’s holiday at Filey. He was married and left four sons and a daughter.
