Dr. Conyers, having been appointed in 1758, one of the physicians to the forces, was obliged to leave England in pursuance of the duties of that office. He therefore resigned his office of Censor 25th July, 1758, and Dr. Addams was appointed in his place. Dr. Conyers was physician to the Foundling hospital, and died about the year 1759. He had received his medical education at Leyden. He was entered on the physic line there 3rd November, 1727, being then twenty years of age, and he graduated doctor of medicine there in 1729 (D.M.I. de Morbis Infantum 4to.).
