Lives of the fellows

John Clarke

b.1614 d.1643
MD Leyden

John Clarke, jun, MD, was the son of Dr John Clarke, a fellow of the college before mentioned. On the 1st June, 1639, being then twenty-five years of age, he was entered on the physic line at Leyden, where he took his degree of doctor of medicine. He passed his three examinations at the College of Physicians in the spring of 1641, but was not admitted a Candidate till the 22nd October, 1642. In the interval he had, I suspect, been incorporated at Cambridge. Dr Clarke did not long survive his admission to our College, as we learn from the following note by Dr Hamey: “Doctor Clarke, junior, Johannis nostri filius, excedendo e vitâ, priusquam è Candidatis excesserat, parentum atque amicorum de se spem omnem frustratus est, sub initium Septembris, 1643.”
