Dr. John Manby Gully (1808-1883). James Manby Gully was born in Jamaica, the son of a wealthy coffee planter. When he was 6 he was taken to England to attend school in Liverpool. He became a medical student at the University of Edinburgh in 1825, as did Charles Darwin in the same year. He became well known for practising hydrotherapy, or the "water cure". Along with his partner James Wilson, he founded a very successful "hydropathy" (as it was then called) clinic in Malvern, which had many notable Victorians, including such figures as Darwin and Lord Tennyson, as clients. He became a member of the British Homoeopathic Society in 1848. He was also a firm believer in a number of women's causes. He advocated Women's suffrage, and preached temperance, due to the detrimental affects of alcohol on the husbands of many Victorian women.
