Biographical Note

Surgeon, of London. Working at least as early as 1658, when Francis Rolfe was apprenticed to him.


Horsnell's library was sold by retail sale in London, 16.6.1698, as part of a joint sale with the books of "an eminent physician"; no catalogue survives, but the sale was advertised in the Post Boy.
