Lives of the fellows

Robert Savorie

b.? d.?

Robert Savorie - The character of his special licence, if such it may be termed, will be best understood from a transcript of the testimonial granted to him by the President and Censors. It is recorded at full length in the Annals: “Bee it known to all whom it may concerne, yt the President and Censors of the Colledge of Physicians, London, having had severall addresses made unto them by Robert Savorie, and some questions proposed unto and resolved by him, have thought fit (by reason he may be useful to the Commonwealth) to give him leave to practise with distracted people, and in some other particular maladies then mentioned, he promising to call to his assistance in difficult cases some of the Colledge, and behaving himself well in all. In witnesse whereof, by appointment of the forementioned; I have hereunto set my hand the 23rd of March, 1652-3.”
