'''Sir George Ent''' was born on 6 November 1604 in Sandwich, Kent. He was the son of a Belgian immigrant, Josias Ent (sometimes called John Ent), who had come to [[England]] to avoid religious persecution.
As a boy, Ent went to school in [[Wallachia]] and [[Rotterdam]], but attended college in [[England]]. He left for college in April 1624, and received his BA from [[Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge]] in 1627 and his MA four years later.<ref>{{Vennacad|ENT624G}}</ref> Following his graduation from Sidney, he spent five years at the [[University of Padua]], earning his MD in 1636.
