Born at Bristol, the son of Charles Edward Bernard by his wife Barbara Fogo, James Bernard went up to St. John’s College, Cambridge, on a scholarship in 1823. Two years later he migrated to Corpus Christi. He studied, in addition, at Paris, Edinburgh, Dublin and London, and took the degrees of M.B. in 1829 and M.D. in 1836. He practised in Bristol, holding early appointments at the Clifton Dispensary and St. Peter’s Hospital. He was one of the founders of the Bristol Medical School and lectured for it on materia medica from 1835 to 1843. From the latter year until 1856, he was physician at the Bristol Royal Infirmary. His wife was Marianna Amelia, daughter of Col. Alexander Lawrence of Clifton.
