Notes:

Sir William Jardine was a leading naturalist who did much to promote an interest in natural history.  "When writing his books, he learned to etch, to draw on wood blocks for wood engraving, to lithograph and to use a variant of lithography called papyrography.  One of ther finest books on fishes ever printed was Jardine's The British Salmonidae, for which he did the drawings and etchings himself."  (Jackson and Davis, see bibliography)

Sir William was the first President of the Dumfrieshsire and Galloway Natural History and Antiquarian Society from its founding in 1862 till his death in 1874
