Medical directory no date: David Slone, West Maitland. [QSL] He was Medical Officer of West Maitland Hospital which opened 1849, performed operation at Maitland in 1845.[Newcastle Library]
Walch's almanac (Tas, 1849): Medical ref for Australasian Colonial & General Life Assurance & Annuity co.: Maitland - D Sloan esq..
     Harry Boyle's index states that Dr Sloan ran a convict hospital in Maitland. In August 1833 & 1834 he signed petitions against the summary punishment law.
     He is mentioned in the petition of Peter Cooke of 22 Feb 1834 in the Colonial Sec. Letters received 4/2248.
     In 1835 he was mentioned in R Bourke's despatch and again in 1837, Resignation as medical attendant.
     Dr. David Sloan was in Maitland as early as 1836 as he attended a meeting in November of that year to thank Petrie Laurentz Campbell for his duties as Police Magistrate.
In 1843 a post mortem was performed by Dr Sloan on the bodies of two aboriginal men who had been killed in a battle near the old 'Black Swan' at Campbell's Hill. One, from the Port Stephens tribe was shot in the nose and the other from the Wollombi tribe was knocked down with a waddie, speared through the thigh and knee and then his head beaten with waddies by three or four others. The Port Stephens man was removed from his shallow grave where he had been wrapped in his blanket with a sheet of bark laid under him with his broken waddie by his side, so that Dr. Sloan could perform the post mortem. He later testified at the inquest held at the Northumberland Hotel. He was listed in a directory dated 1839 as D Sloane, surgeon at Maitland.
     David Sloan married Isabella Lydia Augusta Phillips, daughter of James Phillips and Lydia Ballard, on 15 September 1840 in 'Bona Vista', Paterson, New South Wales, Australia. By special license, on Tuesday, the 15th of September. at her father's residence, Bons Vista, by the Rev. Jennings Smith, A. M., Isabella Lydia Augusta, second daughter of James Phillips, Esq., to David Sloane, Esq., Surgeon, of West Maitland. David Sloan was listed in a directory dated 1841 as David Sloane, medical pracitioner at West Maitland.
David Sloan was declared bankrupt in December 1843 in West Maitland. By January 1844 David Sloan was in financial difficulty and insolvency proceedings ensued. He was allowed to retain his furniture and wearing apparel although there was no mention of his surgical instruments. He may have been allowed to retain them as in May 1845 he performed a Lithotomy on a patient.
     He is mentioned as Dr Sloan, Lochinvar in the court news 22 March 1845, and the news 23 Nov 1844, Mr Sloane, Carcoar, news 15 March 1845 in the Maitland mercury.
     In June he attended Henry Incledon Pilcher with Dr. Beardmore after Pilcher suffered a stroke. The two doctors consulted however were unable to save Pilcher. In August he worked to save the life of John Bowman a child who had been severely burned after his night dress caught fire. Dr. Sloane had rushed to the house and applied the 'proper remedies' without delay however the little boy died 18 hours later. It was found that the fire had 'penetrated through the coats of the abdomen' otherwise a fatal result was not anticipated
In 1848 Dr. Sloane with the assistance of Drs. McCartney and Liddell performed an operation on Mr Ryan. a bullock driver in the employ of Mr Pringle. Ryan had met with an accident several months previously and his thigh had been broken and unsuccessfully set by a resident Doctor. He was sent to Maitland Hospital in May 1848 where several attempts were made by the medical officers to set the leg without avail and it was decided that to amputate the leg was the only option. As the operation would have to be performed rather high up on the thigh it was considered desirable to do so with the aid of chloroform and a small quantity was obtained from Sydney. On the morning of the operation, Ryan was given the chloroform however its effect was to 'make him excited and nervous as if under the influence of strong drink and he remained acutely sensible to the prick of a pin and the operation was postponed. A few days later however it was decided to proceed with the operation without the aid of chloroform. The operation was performed rapidly and skillfully however Ryan was weakened after his long illness and the shock proved too great for him. He never recovered from the state of exhaustion produced by the operation and died a few days later.
     The Maitland mercury reported on 3 May 1845: Lithotomy. - Dr Sloan has performed a very delicate operation on a ticket of leave holder, named Brennan, who is now recovering rapidly under the skilled treatment he is receiving. We believe this is the first time that the operation of cutting for the stone has benn performed in the district.
     It was not unusual for doctors to find themselves in Court giving evidence at inquests or testifying at trials and in 1847 Dr Sloan testified at the trial of Dr John Goodwin. However he was called on to defend his actions in Court in 1846 when he appeared in the Police Court charged by William Heugh with poisoning Heugh's dog by putting poison on a piece of liver. The Bench attempted to dissuade Heugh from proceeding however Dr Sloan expressed a wish that the case might be heard and proceedings were postponed to await witnesses.
     The last reference sighted in the Maitland mercury newspaper was dated 9 Nov 1850 when he was a witness at the inquest into the death of Abraham Dawes.
     In 1853 a David Sloan and Elizabeth had a child John M, baptised at St Andrew's Scots church in Sydney.
     
     The Maitland Mercury reported on 10 Feb 1855: ASSAULT.- David Sloan was yesterday charged before the bench with having, on the 6th February, assaulted Henry Nichols, with a wooden instrument, in complainant's own back yard, to the effusion of his blood. Mr. Chambers ap- peared for the complainant, and Mr. Mullen for the defendant. Mr. Nichols stated that about half-past eight o'clock on the evening of 6th February two neighbours came to his house; one was sitting on the door step, another on a chair inside of the door ; Mrs. Nichols was sitting on a chair in the middle of the room, and complainant was lying on the sofa ; a man suddenly rushed into the room, stumbling over the female on the doorstep, on which Mrs. Nichols rose up and rushed out of the room ; the person who thus entered was Dr. Sloan, who ran after his wife through the back door; witness then got up and went out after them, looked about the place for some minutes, and saw the defendant coming back to the house; witness asked the defendant what he was doing there, when he turned on his heel to get out by the back way; witness followed Mr. Sloan, and when he had got about thirty yards, and was still on complainant's property, he lifted up a pole and turned round to strike witness down, and made a blow at him; witness seeing his danger rushed at defendant and caught him by the throat, and threw him backwards, but whilst doing so he received a blow with the pole in the month, which caused the effusion of blood ; he also struck witness, either with his fist, or something in in, until he was mastered; witness then took his whip from him, and gave him a number of blows, after which defendant got up and run away. Cross examined : witness knew very; well what had brought Dr. Sloan to his house, and he would punish any one who came on a similar errand. Mrs. McDonald was at Mr Nichols' house on the night in question, and was sitting there when Mr. Sloan came in", and walked through the house ; Mr. Nichols was lying on the sofa at the time; Mr. Sloan said nothing when he came in, and Mrs. Nichols, on seeing him, ran out by the back door and hid herself in the wash-house; Mr. Nichols went after him, and defendant was returning to the house when the parties met and had some words, and Mr. Sloan turned back again ; about two minutes after witness went down the yard, and saw complainant attempting to take a stick from defendant; Mr. Nichols was bleeding at the mouth ; they both fell down together, and witness saw Mr. Nichols take a whip out of Dr. Sloan's hand and strike him with it ; witness called on Mr. Nichols, who came away ; Mrs. Nichols came up just as her husband was going into the house, took the whip out of his hand, and threw it over the paddock. No witnesses were pro- duced for the defendant. The bench found the defendant guilty, and fined him £2 10s., with £1 1s. professional costs, 10s. for witness's ex- penses, and court costs, or in default of imme- diate payment, to be imprisoned for 14 days.
