Surgeon, Medical Pioneer. Born in Dudley, Worcestershire, England to a surgeon father, William Badley and Sarah Cox his wife. He studied medicine at Saint Bartholomew's Hospital in London where he was a favorite pupil of John Abernathy a leading surgeon at the turn of the eighteen century and himself a student of Hunter. His notes of Abernathy's lectures in 1801 are in the archives. He was elected as a Fellow and is listed in "The Original 300 Fellows of the Royal College of Surgeons." Despite Abernathy's desire for him to remain in London, his father's poor health and subsequent death caused him to return to Dudley where in 1810 he married his first cousin Mary Fisher Badley. They were the parents of eight children. The eldest two sons emigrated to America and fulfilled his desire to know more about the "American experiment." The seventh child James Payton Badley, remained in England, assumed his father's practice and became the father of John Haden Badley, the centenarian founder of Bedales School, the first co-educational school in England. He lived a full life devoted to his patients and family and died in Dudley and was buried in his father's vault at St. Edmund's Church where there is also a memorial in the nave of the church.
