1806, Early Woman Doctor.  County of Cork Infirmary Mallow Early Woman Doctor Noted Dr.Mary Murphy, Assistant Doctor.

She appears to be a Doctor rather than assistant to the Doctor.  It is possible that she was a type of matron as the date of her appointment is given. There are in the listing for Cork Apothecaries a number of women widows or daughters of Apothecaries from an early date.
