  • In literature

    Lord Alfred Paget is not to be confused with the surgeon Sir James Paget, who was mentioned in the Gilbert & Sullivan operetta Patience of 1881, in which Colonel Calverley notes the surgeon for his "coolness, about to trepan". [To trepan means to bore a hole in the skull (e.g. for surgery).]
