Little is known of his early life, but he studied medicine, and, after graduating MD from Aberdeen, obtained a large practice at York. He was much attached to theatrical amusements, and, in addition to other pieces, such as the satirical Perjury (1774), he composed a mock tragedy entitled Alexander and Statira, which was acted at York, Leeds, and Edinburgh. In 1775 a dramatic satire by him, entitled The Mercantile Lovers, was acted at York. Despite its intrinsic merit, the play sketched too plainly the foibles of prominent citizens of the town, and as a result of their resentment, Wallis lost his entire medical practice. He was obliged to move to Buckingham Street, London, where an expurgated edition of the play appeared in the same year. In London he commenced as a lecturer on the theory and practice of physic, and in 1778 published an Essay on the Evil Consequences Attending Injudicious Bleeding in Pregnancy (1781). His other medical writings included: Nosologia methodica oculorum, or, A Treatise on the Diseases of the Eyes, Translated and Selected from the Latin of Francis Bossier de Sauvages (1785); The Art of Preventing Diseases and Restoring Health (1793; 2nd edn, 1796), which was translated into German in 1800; and An Essay on the Gout (1798). He also edited the Works of Thomas Sydenham on Acute and Chronic Diseases (2 vols., 1789) and the third edition of George Motherby's Medical Dictionary (1791).
