"Astrologer, was the son of a mechanic and brother of Manoah Sibly. He early devoted himself to medicine and more especially to astrology. He studied surgery in London, and in 1792 graduated M.D. from King's College, Aberdeen. In 1790 he was residing in Ipswich, and distinguished himself at the general election by his exertions on behalf of Sir John Hadley D'Oyly, the whig member. Sibly died in London about the beginning of 1800"(Dictionary of National Biography).
