Intro, Biographical Information, Notes etc:

Marty said ...
WE regret to record the death, on March 1st, 1902, of Mr. J. H. Eccles, of Plymouth, at the ripe age of 87. After his curriculum at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, he qualified in the year I839, and subsequently settled in Plymouth, where he was in active practice for over forty years. Always a man of thorough earnestness of purpose, he soon became connected with hospital and other philanthropic work in his town, and at the time of his death, he was Consulting Surgeon to the Royal Eye Infirmary. He also held numerous and important appointments in connection with the Port, particularly that of Medical Inspector of Emigrants. His cheery nature and great kindliness of heart made him a friend of many and won the esteem of all. He was an intense lover of Nature, and nothing was a greater delight to him than to discover to relatives and friends the natural beauties of his county, and especially of the magnificent view from the Hoe, (a large south-facing open public space in the English coastal city of Plymouth). He was twice married, and three sons by his first wife followed in the same profession, while four of his grandsons are also medical men. “The British Medical Journal”
