Who was Matthew Paul Moyle?

Matthew Paul Moyle, meteorologist and writer on mining, second son of John Moyle, by Julia, daughter of Jonathan Hornblower, was born at Chacewater, Cornwall, 4 October 1788, and educated at Guy's and St. Thomas's Hospitals.

He became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1809, and was afterwards in practice at Helston in Cornwall for the long period of sixty-nine years. A considerable portion of his practice consisted in attending the men accidentally injured in the tin and copper mines of his neighbourhood, and his attention was thus led to mining.

From 1841 to 1879 he kept meteorological records for the Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society.

He died at Cross Street, Helston, on 7 August 1880, leaving a large family.
