Studied medicine at the University of Glasgow in the mid 1860s.[1]

Graduated with First Class Certificate of Merit in Surgery, 4 April 1866 (signed by Professor Joseph Lister).[2]

Working as a doctor in Chatteris, Cambridgeshire in 1871. He wrote to his brother William:[1]

I often wish I had gone to Manchester, but John Wilson where I happened to go for a few days, made me a very good offer, a yearly allowance, he thought he could get on better in London and so left a lot of patients for the newcomer. I have taken very well yet, and mean to give it a fair trial. I have about £70 a year of appointments and possibly as much private practice the first year, that would clear me comfortably alone, though it is somewhat expensive living here, but then there is the constant prospect of walking into the other fellows and I could not do better in any place as without means a fellow in our prefession must be content with a small beginning, though I look forward if spared and well, to something better sometime.

Not sure who the John Wilson is.
