Alfred Hall was the youngest son of John Cressy Hall, barrister, of Alfreton, Derbyshire. He studied medicine first at Guy’s Hospital, where he qualified in 1834, and then at Edinburgh University, whose M.D. degree he took in 1840. He practised in Glasgow, Hounslow, and, finally, Brighton. He became senior physician to the Brighton and Hove Dispensary and was connected also with the Brighton and Hove Hospital for Women. He lived in Tunbridge Wells after 1887 but returned to Brighton for his last few years. His wife was Julia Elizabeth, daughter of James Sebright, an official in the postal service. The youngest of their ten children was Sir Edward Marshall Hall, the eminent K.C., who was named after Marshall Hall, F.R.C.P, a friend but no relation of the family.
