George Fabian Evans was one of three sons of David Evans, a Belper surgeon, to achieve distinction at Cambridge. His elder brother took a double first degree, and his younger brother was a classical scholar who became professor of Greek at Durham. He himself went up to Caius College in 1828, after serving an apprenticeship with his father and making preliminary studies at Dublin, Paris and St. Bartholomew’s Hospital. He won a scholarship in 1829, graduated as a wrangler in 1832 and proceeded to his M.B. degree in 1833. The remainder of his life was passed in Birmingham, where he acquired a widespread practice. His first connection was with the General Dispensary, but his main appointment was at the General Hospital, to which he was physician for thirty-four years.
