Born 1853, Wotton-Under-Edge, Gloucester. As a 17 year-old, Wiles worked at a dispensary at 21 Stepney Green with his brother, William[1]. Later married to Sophia with four children. In 1888 he was registered as a surgeon at 56 Mile End Road.

Members of the Whitechapel Vigilance Committee took the Lusk Kidney to Dr. Wiles' surgery on 18th October 1888 where, in his absence, it was examined by his assistant Francis Reed who then took it to Dr. Thomas Horrocks Openshaw at the London Hospital.[2]
