    Hans Sloane was born in Killyleagh, Ireland on April 16, 1660. As a young man, he spent fifteen months in Jamaica as the personal physician to the governor of the island, the 2nd Duke of Albemarle. Whilst there, he collected hundreds of botanical specimens. In 1707, Sloane published the first part of his lavish two volume work, A voyage to the islands, giving a detailed account of the flora of Jamaica. By 1712 Sloane had purchased the Manor of Chelsea, thinking that the Manor House would be the ideal venue to store and exhibit his burgeoning collections
