Christopher Terne, MD, was born in Cambridgeshire, and on the 22nd July, 1647, being then twenty-seven years of age, was inscribed on the physic line at Leyden, where he graduated doctor of medicine. He was incorporated at Cambridge 1st May, 1650, and likewise at Oxford the same month, was admitted a Candidate of the College of Physicians 26th September, 1650, and a Fellow 15th November, 1655. He was lecturer on anatomy at Surgeon’s-hall, and assistant-physician to St Bartholomew’s hospital, but the date of his election to these offices I have not been able to discover. He certainly resigned his appointment at the hospital in the early part of 1669, Dr Dacres being appointed, 24th March, assistant to Dr Micklethwaite in his place. Dr Terne was one of the original fellows of the Royal Society; he resided in Lime-street, City, and died there on the 1st December, 1673.
