Memorable Manitobans: Henry Septimus Beddome (1830-1881)

Surgeon.

Born in London, England, he studied medicine at Guy’s Hospital, London, and entered the employment of the Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) as surgeon in 1851. In 1852 he qualified as a member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. From 1852 to 1857 he was chief medical officer of the HBC, based at York Factory. Upon completion of his term of service he moved to Upper Fort Garry, then in 1859 returned to York Factory for five years before permanently settling into medical practice at Red River in a home just south of St. Andrew’s Church. In 1871 he was one of the founders of the Medical Health Board of Manitoba, which became the College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1877. He died at Headingley on 20 March 1881.
