Cornelius Babington, a cousin of Benjamin Guy Babington, F.R.C.P, studied at St. George’s Hospital, where he was also a house surgeon, and qualified in 1838. His first appointment was as surgeon-accoucheur at St. George’s and St. James’s Dispensary. He lectured on midwifery at the Middlesex Hospital for a time, and built up a successful midwifery practice. Later appointments held by him were those of physician to Queen Charlotte’s Lying-In Hospital, and of assistant physician to the Hospital for Sick Children.
