Stephen Pellet, M.D., was born in London. His education was commenced at Lausanne; afterwards he went to Geneva, and for two years was a pupil of De Saussure. He returned to England, and was matriculated at Hertford college, Oxford, as a member of which house he proceeded A.B. 14th May, 1773. He then removed to Edinburgh, where, after a four years’ course of study, he graduated doctor of medicine 24th June, 1779 (D.M.I. de Palustrium Locorum Insalubri-tate a Miasmate Oriundâ). He was admitted a Licentiate of the College of Physicians 20th March, 1780; and practised first at Reading, but afterwards removed to St. Alban’s, where, besides his usual practice as a physician, he had a house for the reception of lunatics of the upper class. He was for more than a quarter of a century an acting magistrate for the liberty of St. Alban’s. Dr. Pellet eventually retired from practice, and removed to London. He died at Westboum-green, November 28, 1824, aged seventy-eight.
