Birth: 1575
Death: 1634

Doctor and poet, born in the parish of St Leonard Eastcheap. He was educated at the Merchant Taylor's School and St John's College, Oxford, from which he received a BA then MA. After returning from a trip to France in 1607, he also received a Degree of Medicine and became a Fellow of the Royal Society of Physicians. He married and became a father nine times, and while practising medicine in the parish of St Mary Aldermanbury, became acquainted with the literary likes of Ben Jonson, John Donne and John Selden, and wrote his own poetry which was published alongside theirs. Toward the end of his life he was appointed deputy to William Harvey, discoverer of blood circulation. He died the year after this appointment, complaining of being overlooked by those he considered his friends.
