В 1755 году родился английский врач Джеймс Паркинсон

The merits of James Parkinson to science are numerous and incontestable. Back in the year of the Battle of Borodino he explained to the world what caused the death of appendicitis patients. Before Parkinson, nobody was aware of this cause lying in inflammation of appendage. Moreover, he described five years later vorum tremens that was named Parkinson disease in his honor. It was not in medical practice, however, that he observed the symptoms, as there were enough of old Parkinson disease patients in the streets of London.
