Henry (Harry) Searle
Mr Henry (Harry) Searle (1844-26/1/1935) There would appear to be a number of 'profiles' in the database (and associated sheets) for Henry / Harry Searle / H Searle - probably one in the same person. Unfortunately, Desmond's Dictionary of British and Irish Botanists and Horticultalists only records his dates (1844-1935), and offers no further information.
However, a Harry Searle was born in March (Cambridgeshire) about that date. He went on to become a cabinet maker and medical botanist. He lived [towards the end of the century] in the Oldham area (a number of the H@H specimens were collected in the Lancashire area at that time).
This Harry Searle is to be found some years later in Middleton, Lancs, where the 'last' Searle H@H specimen is dated as 1902.
