Abstract

Thomas Fuller was born at a country house in the parish of Brightling, Sussex, on June 24, 1654. He was educated at Queen's College, Cambridge. He received the degree of bachelor of medicine in 1676 and of doctor of medicine in 1681, and was admitted an extralicentiate of the College of Physicians in London in 1679. He settled in Sevenoaks, in Kent, where he was a much beloved practitioner for the remainder of his life.

He was an ardent champion of the poor, and when quite old he compelled the managers of a charity fund of the town to produce their accounts in Chancery and in the future to be subject to annual election.

He wrote a number of medical works: "Pharmacopoeia extemporanea," 1702; "Pharmacopoeia bateana," 1718; "Pharmacopoeia domestica," 1723, and "Exanthematologia: Or an Attempt to Give an Account of Eruptive Fevers, Especially of the Measles and Smallpox," 1730.
