Falconer Hugh

Falconer, Hugh, was born at Forres in 1808, and, after taking the degree of M.D. at Edinburgh, entered the service of the East India Company. His botanical and geological investigations were highly valuable, but his chief claim to distinction is the introduction of the tea-plant into India. The British Museum had the benefit of his services for several years, and he died in London in 1865.

“What a blessed condition is a true believer in! When he dies, he goes to God; and while he lives, everything shall do him good. Affliction is for his good. What hurt does the fire to the gold? It only purifies it.”
–Thomas Watson, A Divine Cordial
