Henry Maudsley
- Favourite Briton.

Born in Woolwich, London
Born on 22nd of August 1771
Died on 14th of February 1831

Maudsley was educated at Giggleswick School and UCL, where he was something of a star student in his medical studies. Instead of the career in surgery he had first considered Maudsley became a psychiatric specialist, serving in several asylums public and private. He later went into private practice, and was a well-regarded writer on mental health and related issues. An agnostic, he also wrote critically of religion and other supernatural beliefs.
