Ferdinand de Victoria

b.? d.c.1529
MD Oxon(1520) FRCP

Ferdinand de Victoria, M.D. – But few traces of this physician have reached us. He was, says Wood, (1) physician to Henry VIII and the Queen Consort, doctor of physic beyond the seas, and was incorporated in the same degree at Oxford in October, 1520. He was Censor of the College of Physicians in 1523, and must have died in the early part of 1529, for on the 16th April of that year Dr. Thomas Fincke was named Elect in place of Dr. de Victoria, deceased.
