Description

This house is where George Martine (the elder, as well as the younger) used to live in St Andrews. George Martine the elder(1635-1712), was a historian of St Andrews. He was known for the diocesan history Reliquiæ divi Andreæ. In June 1688, he married Catherine and had several children, George Martine the younger (1700-1741), was one of them. Martine the younger was a physician of St Andrews. He was educated at the University of St Andrews when he was thirteen. Later, he went to study medicine at the University of Edinburgh in 1720 and then went to the University of Leyden, where he graduated in 1725. He also made a huge contribution to natural philosophy by estimating the temperature of absolute zero to around -240° C. Unfortunately, he died of malarial fever when he was on the Caribbean Sea.
