Robert Preest, MD, a native of Middlesex, educated at Peterhouse, Cambridge, where he proceeded AB, 1570, AM, 1573, and MD, 1580, was admitted a Candidate of the College of Physicians 22nd December, 1582. In 1589 he was associated with Drs Atslow, Browne, and Farmery in preparing the formulæ of syrups, juleps, and decoctions for the Pharmacopœia. There is little doubt, therefore, that at that time he was a Fellow of the College, though I can find no note of his admission as such.
