Remembered as one of Great Britain's leading obstetricians of the Eighteenth Century, this Scottish Doctor and anatomy Teacher is perhaps most famous as the medical instructor and older brother of the renowned surgeon John Hunter.
Though remembered primarily for his work in the medical field of obstetrics, he also contributed to orthopedics, penning an important 1743 paper on the topic of cartilage injuries.
He was the brother-in-law of poet Anne Hunter (the wife of surgeon John Hunter) and the uncle of Agnes Hunter (who later became the wife of prominent Scottish military man and Politician James Campbell of Inverneill).
In the 1760s, he became the personal physician of King George III's wife, Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (Queen Charlotte).
