Lives of the fellows

Thomas Bentley

b.? d.?
MB Oxon(1516) MD(1518) FRCP

Thomas Bentley, M.D., was of New College, Oxford, and proceeded [bachelor of medicine 27th June 1516] doctor of medicine in June, 1518. The date of his admission as a fellow of the College of Physicians is not recorded, but his name follows immediately after Dr. Christopherson. He was Elect and Censor in 1523; Consiliarius, 1527, 1528; President, 1526, 1529, 1530. The time of his death is nowhere recorded. His name is not in the list of Elects for 1541, but as I have before stated, the records for the previous ten years are so defective, that he may have died at any period between 1531 and 1541.(1)
