William Stroud, M.D., was born at Bath 3rd July, 1789, and after a sound scholastic education, applied himself to the study of medicine. He resided for several years with Mr. Stocker, the apothecary of Guy’s hospital, and then proceeded to Edinburgh, where he graduated doctor of medicine 2nd August,1819 (D.M.I. de Arthritide regulari). On leaving Edinburgh he went to Paris, where he spent two years, and after an extensive tour to Italy, settled in London. He was admitted a Licentiate of the College of Physicians 28th March, 1825.

Dr. Stroud was a sound and judicious physician, a person of literary tastes and extensive attainments. He never did much in the way of private practice. From an early period he took special interest in biblical pursuits, and on them he expended a large proportion of the zeal and energy of his maturer years. He died suddenly of apoplexy 29th June, 1858, and was buried in the cemetery at Highgate.

Dr. Stroud will be long remembered as the author of two works of great learning and research—
A Treatise on the Physical Cause of the Death of Christ, and its relation to the principles and practice of Christianity. 8vo. Lond. 1847.
A Harmony of the Four Gospels. Lond.
