Stephen Love Hammick bore the same Christian names as his father — a baronet and Surgeon-Extraordinary to George IV and William IV — whom he pre-deceased. His mother was Frances, daughter of Peter Turquand, merchant, of London. He entered Christ Church, Oxford, in 1822 and graduated as B.M. in 1831. In the same year he was elected to a Radcliffe travelling fellowship. He attended Mitscherlich’s lectures in Berlin in 1834 and 1835, and published a translation of Part 1 of his Compendium of Practical and Experimental Chemistry in 1839. He died in 1839, shortly after settling in practice in London.
