The earliest pieces of evidence for the first formal teaching of farriery and veterinary medicine in the town are to be found in newspaper advertisements for a series of lectures to be held in Bernard's Rooms, Thistlestreet, Edinburgh from the 19th to the 22nd July 1796. The lecturer was a French Royalist refugee, John Feron who presented himself as a 'Professor of Veterinary Medicine'.
