George Kennion

b.1813 d.27 June 1868
MD Edin FRCP(1865)

George Kennion’s childhood was spent at London and Harrogate, where his father held livings, and it was in Harrogate that he settled after graduating at Edinburgh in 1837. He was physician to the Harrogate Bath Hospital and did much to popularise the local mineral water. He enjoyed a large practice as well as the friendship of leading medical men — among them Jenner, who attended him in his last illness.
