    I have a Robert ELLIOT, Surgeon & Medical Practitioner, Licentiate of the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh.
    In the Provincial Medical Directory of 1850 he appears with the date of 1831 - I assume the year he qualified? (He was born about 1809).

    I would like to find anything about his training/studies/qualifications.
    And whether he had to fund it himself - how much would it have cost? (The family does not appear to be particularly well off: father a Cattle Dealer, but Robert's the younger son, the 5th of 7 surviving children).

    Any ideas where I should be looking?

    Thanks, Sandie.
    Well, his name is there, but no new information.
    I shall have to make further enquiries ... maybe they've got something hidden in the archives. A photo would be nice (she said hopefully!)
