1618-1658. A physician. From the Royal College of Physicians’ Lives of the Fellows:

He … entered on the study of physic, pursued anatomy with the utmost diligence, and, “with the help” (as Wood says) “of Dr Clayton, master of his college, and the king’s professor of physick, made some discovery of that fourth set of vessels, plainly differing from veins, arteries, and nerves, now called the lymphatics.”
