MD Edin(1819) LRCP(1820)

John Garthshore Thomson, M.D., was born in the East Indies. After keeping some terms at St. John’s college, Cambridge, which he left without taking any degree, he proceeded to Edinburgh, where he graduated doctor of medicine 2nd August, 1819 (D.M.I. de Scarlatina Anginosa). He was admitted a Licentiate of the College of Physicians, 22nd December, 1820. He was unsuccessful in life, and ultimately fell into distress. Oppressed by infirmity, poverty, and sore domestic trials, a subscription was made for him in 1859, but he did not long survive.
