Footnotes

  • Anna Blackburne was an English naturalist and important collector of natural specimens who had acquired an interest in natural history from her father, John. Inspired by her father, Blackburne developed her own collection which contained specimens from a number of sources. She was also in contact with naturalists, Linnaeus and Johann Rheinold Forster who both named several species in her honour and encouraged Blackburne to publish her own entomological observations. After her death in 1793 her nephew inherited her collection which had been dispersed by the early 1900s. It is likely that the watercolours are from the sale of the contents of Hale Hall.
