Born at Congleton in Cheshire, Charles Hall qualified in 1845 and obtained the F.R.C.P. of Edinburgh three years later. After holding a resident post at the Manchester Royal Infirmary, he settled in Bristol, becoming physician to the General Hospital, but was obliged by ill health to move to Torquay in 1850. Here he was appointed physician and subsequently consulting physician to both the Hospital for Consumption and the Institution for Reduced Gentlewomen with Affected Chests. He was the author of Torquay in its Medical Aspects (1857) as well as articles in medical journals, and presided over the B.M.A.’s meeting at Torquay in 1860. He died at Torquay.
