Lives of the fellows

John Edmonds Stock

b.1774 d.October 1835
MD Ex LRCP(1803)

John Edmonds Stock, M.D., was for some time at Exeter college, Oxford, but having conscientious scruples as to subscription, he left the university without taking any degree. He obtained a degree of doctor of medicine, but from what university I have not been able to discover, and was admitted an Extra-Licentiate of the College of Physicians 5th December, 1803. He practised at Bristol, where his secession in 1816 from the Unitarians, with whom he had allied himself, occasioned a great sensation, and led to a correspondence which was made public at the time. Dr. Stock died at the house of his brother-in-law at Tewkesbury, in October, 1835, aged sixty-one.

He was the author of—
Medical Collections on the Effects of Cold as a remedy in certain Diseases. 8vo. Lond. 1805.
Memoirs of the Life of Thomas Beddoes, M.D., with an analytical account of his writings. 4to. Lond. 1811.
