Thomas Browne

b.? d.?
MD Padua(1654) MD Oxon(1656)

Thomas Browne, MD, was educated at St John's college, Oxford, but took the degree of doctor of medicine at Padua 15th September, 1654. He was incorporated on that degree at Oxford 3rd June, 1656; was examined, approved, and on the 11th September, 1656, elected a Candidate of the College of Physicians; but then spontaneously declaring himself a member of the church of Rome, was found to be inadmissible. A testimonial from the Registrar was granted to him the 5th December, 1656: ā€œDr Thomas Browne petiit Collegii sigillum literis suis testimonialibus affigi; verum id illi negatum est; sancitumque porrò, literas illi concessas ceu privatam Registarii relationem, non autem ut publicum Collegii testimonium habendas esse.ā€
