Arthur a'Beckett was born in Golden Square, London, and after serving his apprenticeship became a student of the London University, now University College, in 1834.
Here he gained prizes, and as soon as he had qualified he served as Staff Surgeon in the British Legion in Spain, from 1835-1837, and was placed on the staff of Sir de Lacy Evans. For his services he was decorated Knight of San Ferdinand, an Order for distinguished service on the field of battle, a cross and medal for the battle of San Sebastian and the skirmish at Irun. He went to Sydney in June, 1839, and was appointed one of the first members of the Legislative Council of New South Wales, acted as a surgeon to the Benevolent Asylum, an examiner in the medical faculty of the University of Sydney, a trustee of the Australian Museum, and a trustee of the Grammar School at Sydney. He lived for thirty years in Sydney, and made only two visits home - on the first occasion to improve his medical knowledge, when he spent some time in Paris; on the second occasion in the hope of retiring from practice. Heavy financial losses in colonial companies frustrated this desire, and in 1865 he returned to Australia, resumed his practice, and died on May 23rd, 1871.
