Proceedings of the Provincial Court, 1666-1670
The casual mention in the Maryland records of this period of a number of men who were styled physicians or chirurgeons does not necessarily imply that many of them had had a real professional training. In addition to Morecroft, Tilghman, Champ, and Stansby already mentioned, we find mention of a number of others. In 1666 John Peerce was called “Chirurgeon of the good ship called the Adventure of Hull” England, and a few years later is mentioned as of Talbot County, and is styled either “Dr.” or “Chirurgeon” (pp. 84-85, 374, 552).
