Thomas Christie qualified as a doctor in 1854, in which year he also took the St. Andrew’s M.D. degree and obtained his first appointment, as assistant medical officer at Pembroke House, Hackney, an asylum for Indian soldiers. In 1867 he moved north to become medical superintendent of the North Riding Asylum at Clifton, near York, which post, however, he relinquished after three years to assume the same responsibilities at the Royal India Asylum, Ealing, which had superseded Pembroke House. From 1873 he was also surgeon-major of the 5th Battalion of the Rifle Brigade. Christie retired in 1891.
