William George Maton (1774-1835), born in Salisbury, was the Physician Extraordinary to Queen Charlotte, wife of George III. He had one of the largest and most successful practices in London and published widely in medicine, botany, natural sciences and local history. He studied the natural sciences at Oxford, receiving his B.A., M.A. and D.M. Maton held many distinguished positions at the Royal College of Physicians, including Harveian orator and Goulstonian lecturer. His medical papers appeared in many journals of the time. His non-medical papers include various articles on antiquarian subjects published in the Gentleman's Magazine and Archaeologia.
