Sir Thomas Watson (1792-1882), b. Montrath, Devonshire, England; an eminent physician. He was a physician to the Middlesex Hospital, then connected to the University College. Watson was lecturer at several medical colleges, and professor of medicine at Kings College.
"He continued to be the physician to the Middlesex Hospital till 1843. In that year he published his famous Lectures on the Principles and Practice of Physic...The author corrected five editions, and it continued for thirty years the chief English text-book of medicine. It contains no discoveries, but is based upon sound clinical observations, gives a complete view of English medicine of its period,a and is remarkable for its good literary style." - DNB.
