Dr. Edward Harman Maul was a well-loved and respected local doctor in the 19th century. He lived at 1 High Street, one of the two red-brick Georgian buildings standing to the east of the Bargate, which were demolished to make way for the Bargate ring road in the 1930s. His surgery was reached by way of a narrow passage on the Bargate side of the house. There are many stories of his kindness and philanthropy, particularly to the poor of the town. For twenty years he was the medical officer of the Ordnance Survey and took great pride in improving the health of the young soldiers. He died in 1876 and was buried in Pear Tree churchyard.
