MD Cantab(1658)

Robert Strachie, MD, was a doctor of medicine of Cambridge, of 6th July, 1658, and was admitted a Candidate of the College of Physicians 25th June, 1659. I can recover no particulars of his career. He was buried in the church of Bishop’s Stortford, co Hertford, where his memento may be read as follows:-
Sub hoc marmore
reconditum est quod mortale fuit
ROBERTI STRACHIE, MD,

dierum satur, quippe annos natus 84,
migravit ex hâc vitâ in beatiorem.
A R ex sorore proneptis et hæres H P.

His son Charles, also a doctor of medicine, had long preceded him to the grave. He died 23rd February, 1687, and was buried in the church of All Saints, Cambridge. In the nave there was the following inscription:-
Hic jacet CAROLUS STRACHIE, MD, filius unicus Roberti Strachie, MD. Obiit 23 Feb, 1687.
