William Goddard, MD, a native of Norfolk, and a doctor of medicine of Padua, incorporated at Oxford in July, 1634, was admitted a Candidate of the College of Physicians 1st August, 1634, and a Fellow ten days after, viz, 11th August, 1634. He was Censor in 1638, 1641, 1644. On the 23rd November, 1649, having been contumacious, and refusing to attend at his place in the College, though repeatedly summoned by the President, he was, by a vote of his colleagues, dismissed from his fellowship: “decreto Collegii, in Collegii societate locum amisit.” Dr Goddard carried the matter into the Court of King’s Bench, but was defeated, and judgement given in favour of the College.
