George Mann Carfrae M.D. (6 July 1836 – 18 April 1900) was an orthodox physician who converted to homeopathy to become House Surgeon and later Consulting Physician for Diseases of Women at the London Homeopathic Hospital.

Carfrae was a Fellow of the British Homeopathic Society. He served as Vice-President in 1882 – 1883, and in 1889 – 1890 was the Society’s President. Carfrae enjoyed the rare distinction of being re-elected President the following year. He was also a member of the Royal Institution of Great Britain, a Fellow of the British Gynecological Society, a physician at George Heriot’s Hospital in Edinburgh, and a provincial medical referee for the Caledonian Insurance Company for Surbiton.

Carfrae was a colleague of John Galley Blackley, Allan Broman, Matthew James Chapman, John Henry Clarke, John Roberson Day, Robert Ellis Dudgeon, Robert Douglas Hale, Richard Hughes, Joseph Kidd, William Burnett Douglas Miller, John Moorhead Byres Moir, Frederick Hervey Foster Quin, Neville Wood, George Wyld, Stephen Yeldham, and many others.

George Mann Carfrae was born in Edinburgh in July 1836 to Macduff Carfrae (1809 – 1843) and Isabella Hogg (1807 – 1883). His early education was at Heriots Hospital and the High School of Edinburgh.

Carfrae received a bursary to study medicine at the University of Edinburgh, where he became one of the favourite students of Sir James Young Simpson. In August 1857, Carfrae received his M.D.

G. M. Carfrae began in private practice in North Berwick. Early in his career he was introduced to homeopathy by one of its aristocratic patrons, Fanny Margaretta Finch-Hatton, Dowager Countess Winchilsea.

Carfrae became resident house surgeon at the London Homeopathic Hospital, following which he moved to Weston super-Mare, where he practiced with Dr. George Blair Cochran.

After a period there Carfrae relocated to Surbiton and, in September 1869, he married Agnes Emma Bartrop (1849 – 1919).

Carfrae practiced in Adelaide Road, Surbiton, at Laurel Villa on Victoria Road, Surbiton, and from 1874 at 4 Hertford Street, Mayfair. It was his close friendship with Dr.’s Quin, Hamilton and Hugh Cameron that enabled Carfrae to commence a successful practice in London.

In 1874 Carfrae was appointed Physician for Diseases of Women at the London Homeopathic Hospital, a position he held until he resigned in 1892, thereafter serving as Consulting Physician to that department.

George Mann Carfrae, alongside James Peddie Harper, attended veteran homeopath Hugh Cameron during his final illness.

George Mann Carfrae was one of the participants at the second International Homeopathic Congress held in London on 11 – 18 July 1881, at Aberdeen House, Argyll Street, Regent Street.

Carfrae submitted cases and articles to various homeopathic publications, and non-medical journals.

George Mann Carfrae died on 18 April 1900 after a short illness. He was attended by Dr.’s James Peddie Harper and John Galley Blackley.
