James Arthur Sewell, M.D., L.R.C.S.Ed.

"Dr James Arthur Sewell died at Mentone on the 2nd. of January. He belonged to a family long settled in Canada, which produced some distinguished lawyers. His grandfather was the Honourable Jonathan Sewell, Chief Justice of Lower Canada. His father was a physician in Quebec. Dr. Sewell graduated at Edinburgh 1856, and at the same time took the diploma of the College of Surgeons of that city. He entered the service of the Honourable East India Company in 1857. During the mutiny he was amongst the slender garrison which held the Fort at Agra, the only place remaining to us in the North-West until after the capture of Delhi. Dr Sewell was present at the action with the Nemuch Brigade and other fights with the mutinous Sepoy regiments about Agra. He remained eight years in the Indian Medical Service, after which he resigned his commission and went Québec, where he married a Canadian lady who only lived a few years after the marriage. About twenty years ago, he went to London where he set up in practice. He married for the second time Mrs Elizabeth Ainslie, daughter of the late Robert Ainslie, Esq of the Elvingston. Everything seemed to promise a prosperous career, when there appeared symptoms of phthisis. Against the attacks of this disease Dr Sewell struggled with heroic fortitude. He tried many health resorts, the South of England, Pau and the Engadine, but finally settled at his residence, Villa Blanche, Mentone, generally spending the summer months in Savoy and Switzerland. Dr Sewell was above six feet in height, a remarkably fine looking man. He was of a cheerful and lively disposition and kind and faithful friend. He had a ripe knowledge of his profession, and from his general culture and travels his conversation was most agreeable. He had much power of wit and humour, and a large fund of anecdotes. His long and often trying illness was cheered by the care and company of his wife and daughter. His only son is now in Canada." Scottish Medical and Surgical Journal, Vol. 4. 1899, pp. 165,166.
