Henry Sewall

M, b. 8 April 1576, d. March 1656/57
     Henry Sewall was born in 1576 in Coventry.1 He was baptised on 8 April 1576 at St. Michael's Church, Coventry, Warwickshire.2,3,4,5 He was the son of Henry Sewall and Margaret Grazebrook. Henry Sewall may have married firstly Mary Cawarden, daughter of Thomas Cawarden of Mavesyn Ridware and Ann (Unknown), on 21 October 1601 at St. Nicholas, Mavesyn Ridware, Staffordshire, The name is the only suggestion that Henry was of the Coventry Sewalls.6 Henry Sewall married Anne Hunt probably at Manchester.7,8 Henry Sewall married as his second or third wife Ellen Mosley, daughter of Anthony Mosley and Alice Webster, after 16 December 1615 being the date that the Bishop of Chester granted a licence for them to be married at Ashton-on-Mersey, Cheshire or Didsbury, Lancashire.
(There is a discrepancy here, the notes in the Diary state that Henry was only married twice 1, Anne Hunt and 2, Ellen Nugent, the McClellan family tree clearly shows the earlier marriage, which is also noted by Duff p.13. This is an indication that the Henry who married in 1601 was from a different family.)3,7
In 1623 Henry Sewall was living in Manchester, England.9 He emigrated in 1635 to Massachusetts; "together with his wife Anne." (Actually Ellen, Anne being dead).10 He and Ellen Mosley resided at Ipswich, Massachusetts, on 5 June 1638; when her husband Henry was presented to the grand jury for beating her. This appears to be another example of the temper that his mother refered to in her will.3 In 1646 Henry Sewall was recorded as living in Rowley.3 He died in March 1656/57 in Rowley, Essex County, Massachusetts, at the age of 80 'died there the "first month 1656."3 '

Dr. Henry Sewall1

M, b. 25 May 1855, d. 8 July 1936
Dr. Henry Sewall
(1855-1936)
     Dr. Henry Sewall was born on 25 May 1855 in Winchester, Virginia.2,3 He was the son of Rev. Thomas Sewall and Julia Elizabeth Waters.1 Dr. Henry Sewall married Isabel Josephine Vickers, daughter of J.J. Vickers, on 22 September 1887 in St. James' Cathedral, Toronto.4 Dr. Henry Sewall died on 8 July 1936 in Denver at the age of 81 from a coronary thrombosis. s.n.p. and is buried in Fairmount Cemetery, Denver.5 He received his preparatory education in private schools in Baltimore and Brooklyn, and entered Wesleyan University, where he graduated B.Sc. in 1876. He then took up postgraduate work at John Hopkins University, where he was Assistant in Biology from 1876 to 1878, Fellow in Biology in 1878-1879, and where he received his Ph.D. Over the following year he studied in Europe, and after that became Associate in Biology at John Hopkins University. In 1881 he was called to the Professorship of Physiology at the University of Michigan, where he performed research on equilibrium, muscle contraction, respiration and colour vision, and is best known for immunizing animals against snake venom, demonstrating the principle of antitoxin production. He held this position to 1889, when he moved to Denver, Colorado, and accepting a similar position in the University of Denver. He was Assistant Health Commissioner of Denver, 1891 to 1893. Secretary Colorado State Board of Health, 1893-1899; visiting physician to St. Luke's and Denver County Hospitals from 1891. He was a member of the American Physiological Society, of the Association of American Physicians, the American Climatological Society, and the American Medical Association.

Dr. Henry Sewall and his wife, Isabel, bought a house at 1380 Vine St. in 1904. Dr. Sewall had struggled with illness as a child and because of this he was extremely interested in helping children develop. Dr. Sewall and Isabel willed their home to the cause of helping children with special needs. Dr. Sewall died in 1936 at the age of 81. The Sewall Child Development center was founded in 1944.6

"For a physician who is a lover of wisdom is the equal of a god."


No tribute to our late colleague, Dr. Henry Sewall, could be better penned than this quotation for Hippocrates. The passing of one who gave his life to the science and art of medicine rather than to enrichment is no common event.
It was his instinct to seek to answer the "wherefore" of every "why" and in his presence one could almost sense the emanations of intellect. The spirit to seek out Nature's secrets had existed in a grandfather, Thomas Sewall, who was graduated in medicine at Harvard in 1812. The literary talent, which enriched his publications, came from his father, a clergyman, known as the "silver-tongued Sewall." Such inherited traits were enhanced by the lifelong help and devotion of his wife, with whom we now share her great sorrow.
It has been well written that "Perhaps there is no science which requires so penetrating an intellect, so much talent and genius, so much force of mind, so much acuteness and memory, as the science of medicine. The high character of a perfect master of the art must be the result of a combination of a multiplicity of qualifications, which must be partly natural, and partly acquired and improved by laborious cultivation." It was such a combination which made of Henry Sewall a great physician, scholar and gentleman.
In early life it was the good fortune of Henry Sewall to work under two great physiologists - Michael Foster in England, and Carl Ludwig in Germany. Of Michael Foster, Sewall wrote, "He despised the foible of vanity and had no patience with mercenary inclinations." In Carl Ludwig, Sewall admired the dogged determination to complete an experiment, and he later wrote, "It set me to thinking perhaps it was this sort of thing that made Ludwig preeminent." It is easy to see the influence of these great men in the life of Henry Sewall, and it was such an influence he passed on successfully to another generation.
Pondering over Jenner's vaccination, Pasteur discovered that the inoculation of attenuated organisms of chicken cholera resulted in immunization. Pondering over Pasteur's publications Henry Sewall was led to investigate the possible immunization of pigeons to rattlesnake venom. It was known that pigeons were peculiarly sensitive to rattlesnake venom. First determining the minimum fatal dose, Henry Sewall, in 1887, by repeated inoculations of sub-minimal doses successfully immunized pigeons to this poisonous protein. These experiments were recognized in Europe as the foundation on which the development of antitoxins was built. Physicians from all parts of the world have stood in reverence before the tablet erected at Ann Arbor to commemorate the experiments of Henry Sewall, the former Professor of Physiology at the University of Michigan.
Pulmonary tuberculosis brought Henry Sewall to Denver, and the courage with which he met this affliction and its complications and the triumph over typhoid, with rib necrosis, is well known to his friends. No better basis for medical practice exists than a training in physiology, and the Ph.D. of Johns Hopkins of 1879 became an M.D. of the University of Denver in 18S9. The man of thought became the medical practitioner and thus was fulfilled another Hippocratic maxim: "For many cases need, not reasoning, but practical help."
The practice of medicine was illuminated by the spirit of investigation, and in heart disease and in tuberculosis the research spirit of Henry Sewall prevailed. For many years he worked in and inspired the research department of the National Jewish Hospital.
To have been president of the Colorado State Medical Society, of the National Tuberculosis Association, of the American Climatological and Clinical Association, and of the Association of American Physicians; to have been the recipient of the Kober medal of the Association of American Physicians and of the Trudeau medal of the National Tuberculosis Association - such are honors in recognition of worth which few physicians can attain.
As a practitioner, and as a consultant in internal medicine, his consideration, understanding, gentleness, and effort will live in the medical history of Colorado just as his scientific spirit will live in the medical history of the world.
A splendid portrait of Dr. Sewall by McClymont hangs on the walls of the library of the Denver County Medical Society.
Born in Winchester, Va., May 25, 1855, Dr. Henry Sewall died from coronary thrombosis in Denver, July 8, 1936.
The desire of all physicians will be to join in the words of the greatest of poets:
"Quiet consummation have;
And renowned be thy grave! "

Dr. Gerald Webb writing in Transactions of the American Clinical and Climatological Association. 1936; 52: xlviii-1.
