Michael Greene 1819 - 1890? MRCS England 1841, was an Irish orthodox physician who converted to homeopathy (Peter Morrell, A History of Homeopathy in Britain, (Staffordshire University) ’… Another important Irish homeopath was Dr Michael Greene (1819-c1890) of Ennis, near Galway, who was the first to use Crataegus (Hawthorn). MRCS England, 1841 (Medical Directory, 1863, p.844)…’).

Michael Greene of Ennis, Co Clare, near Galway, who was the first to use Crataegus (Hawthorn). He was a colleague of Joseph Kidd and Charles W Luther.

Of interest:

They were many Michael Greene’s in Co Clare and this may be part of homeopath Michael Green’s family?

Lucy Jane Brew born in Thomas Street, Limerick, on 21 October 1824, and was the only surviving child (of William Adams Brew 1792 - ) and Lucy Stackpoole Lysaght ( - 1856). Lucy Jane Brew married her first cousin, Henry Greene of Ennis, in Ennistymon, Co. Clare, in December 1853.  Henry Greene later became Sub Sheriff of Clare, a position he held for many years. Henry Greene died at Brookville on 9 November 1869 and was buried in Dromcliffe. Lucy Jane died in Savannah, Georgia, U.S.A., on 9 January

She died at Bramblewood, Holt, Norfolk, on 21 May 1913 and was buried at Kelling near Holt.) (Michael Green’s parents? possibly were Jane Brew, the daughter of Chartres Brew - 1819 and Rebecca Adams - 1802, who was born 29 July 1788 and married Michael Greene of Ennis, son of Henry Greene of Ennis and his wife Anne (daughter of William Adams of Killaloe), on 4 November 1817. Jane died at Tulla on 17 June 1854 and was buried at Dromcliffe with her husband Michael, who died 19 November 1837.) Michael Green and Lucy Jane also had a son called Michael Greene who died unmarried in Argentina.)
