b.8 March 1811 d.2 May 1890
MD Heidelberg FRCP(1848)

Alfred Lochée was born in London, the son of John Lochee, barrister, and grandson of Lewis Lochée, master of the Military Academy at Chelsea. He studied medicine at the Middlesex Hospital and in later years was twice offered the appointment of physician to the Hospital. But he had by then established himself in practice at Canterbury and refused to leave a place to which he had become greatly attached. He was physician to the Kent and Canterbury Hospital from 1838 to 1884 and, in 1861, president of the B.M.A. He was a devoted churchman and closely connected, as a friend and lecturer, with the Missionary College of Saint Augustine, founded in 1848. He married in 1846 a daughter of G. M. Taswell, of Canterbury.
