John Graunt

John Graunt (24 April 1620 – 18 April 1674) has been regarded as the founder of demography.Graunt was one of the first demographers, and perhaps the first epidemiologist, though by profession he was a haberdasher.

He was bankrupted later in life by losses suffered during Great Fire of London and the discrimination he faced following his conversion to Catholicism.
