Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Abraham Colles (23 July 1773 - 1843) was professor of Anatomy, Surgery and Physiology at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. Descended from a Worcestershire family, some of whom had sat in Parliament, he was born to William Colles and Mary Anne Bates of Woodbroak, Co. Wexford. The family lived near Millmount, a townsland near Kilkenny, Ireland, where his father owned and managed his inheritance which was the extensive Black Quarry that produced the famous Black Kilkenny Marble. The father died when Colles was 6, but his mother took over the management of the quarry and managed to give her children a good education.
