John Wyberd, MD – Wood informs us that he was the son of Walter Wyberd, of Tackley, co Essex; that he became a commoner of Pembroke college, Oxford, in 1638, but left it when the troubles began in England. We know that he then travelled on the continent, that he was entered on the medical line at Leyden 20th October, 1642, being then twenty-four years of age, and that he took the degree of doctor of medicine at Franeker in July, 1644. He was incorporated at Oxford, on his doctor’s degree, 26th May, 1654, and was admitted a Candidate of the College of Physicians (his examinations having been passed shortly before his incorporation) on the 26th June, 1654. Wood represents him as well versed in some parts of geometry, and as the author of
Tactometria, or Tetagmenometria, or the Geometry of Regulars practically proposed. 8vo. London.
