Jonathan Binns, M.D.—A doctor of medicine of Edinburgh, of 12th September, 1772 (D.M.I. de Exercitatione); was admitted an Extra-Licentiate of the College of Physicians 21st October, 1772. He practised at Liverpool, but after a time withdrew from the exercise of his profession, and superintended a school belonging to the society of Friends (of which body he was himself a member) in Yorkshire. He subsequently removed to Lancaster, where he resumed practice as a physician, and died in the early part of 1812.(1)

Liverpool was a port which handled a significant proportion of the European slave trade. In 1783 Binns signed a petition requesting an end to the export of slaves by officers of the Royal African Company. This stance made him very unpopular in Liverpool and made him the subject of plots to kill him.
