William Moore, M.D., was born in London, and was the eldest son of Mr. William Moore, who, after acquiring an ample fortune in the drug trade, in London, retired to Missenden, co. Bucks. He received his early education at Campden school, near Broadway, Worcestershire, whence he was transferred to Pembroke college, Oxford, as a member of which he proceeded A.B. 22nd October, 1784; A.M. 6th June, 1787; M.B. 17th June, 1788; M.D. 10th May, 1791. He was admitted a Candidate of the College of Physicians 25th June, 1792; a Fellow, 25th June, 1793; and was Censor in 1793. He was physician to the duke of York, and to the army, and went through the greater part of the campaign in Flanders. He was subsequently sent with troops to Ireland; and, after remaining there some time, returned with the intention of settling in London. In 1803, however, on the renewal of the war, Dr. Moore was selected to fill the newly created office of principal medical officer to the army depĂ´t in the Isle of Wight. He therefore fixed his residence in that island, and continued there till his death, which occurred at Ryde in the spring of 1832, at the age of sixty-six.
