Henry Morelli

b.? d.?
MD LRCP(1684)

Henry Morelli, MD, an Italian and a doctor of medicine, but of what university is not stated, was admitted a Licentiate of the College 25th June, 1684. He was a Roman catholic, and suspicions appear to have existed as to his antecedents or objects in coming to this country, for, under date of 5th February, 1682-3, I meet with the following entry in the Annals: “Dr Morelli, Italus natione, jusjurandum de Regis primatu se dedisse, necnon de fide suâ et verâ allegantiâ erga Regiam Majestatem, per Irenarcharum duorum testimonium probavit; asseruit etiam se nunquam sacerdotio addictum, sed medicinæ a juventute operam navasse.”
