Description

Excerpt from Souvenir of the Centenary of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, 1800-1900 The union of the Surgeons and the Barbers lasted two hundred years, though not without a feeling on the part of the Surgeons that their union with the Barbers was disadvantageous, and in 1684 they petitioned the King to dissolve the union. But matters remained as they were until when a Bill was brought before Parliament to make the Surgeons and the Barbers of London into distinct Corporations. This Bill received the Royal Assent on May 2, 1745. The new Company of Surgeons was incorporated by the name of the Masters, Governors and Commonalty of the Art and Science of Surgeons of London, and the Corporation consisted of twenty-one Assistants appointed for life of these, one was Master and two were Wardens selected annually, and ten were Examiners, who were appointed for life.
