Lives of the fellows

John Yardley

b.1637 d.29 October 1697
MD Hon FRCP(1664)

John Yardley, MD, was inscribed on the physic line at Leyden 10th September, 1661. I fail to discover where he graduated. He was admitted an Honorary Fellow of the College of Physicians in December, 1664. He practiced for several years at Bishop’s Stortford; and, dying 29th October, 1697, aged 60, was buried in the parish church, where a monument to his memory bears the following inscription:-
Hic juxta situs est JOHANNES YARDLEY, MD
qui, postquam varias Europæ regiones
perlustraverat, in patriam redux, omni
literarum genere abundè instructus,
in hoc demum oppido artem medicam
per plures annos cum laude
et feliciter exercuit:
Ob 29 Octob AD 1697, æt suæ 60.
Eodem tegitur sepulchro ALICIA,
quod illi semper in votis fuerat;
uxor erat merito dilectissima,
mulier omni virtutum genere ornata.
Ob 10 Decemb 1712, æt suæ 65.
Ex his orti sunt quatuor; Alicia,
Elizbetha, Johannes, Carolus,
è quibus tres infantes sepulti jacent.
Johannes Yardley, MD filius eorum
unicus superstes, monumentum hoc,
pro pietate suâ erga parentes optimos,
poni curavit.
