    Notes 
    • Dr Walter Battershell Gill was an Entomologist who was tutored by the late Peter Bouchard, who died on expedition to Santa Marta in 1865. Dr Gill came into possession of Bouchard's Collecting Diary and retained it until at least 1874. Battersheell Gill's own collection of specimens was sold off in April 1886 but the Diary was not listed. References to it in The Entomolgist continued until 1897 but it is not known if the collection survived and, if so, its present location. Peter Bouchard's great great grandson is attempting to trace it - messages for him will be forwarded to him - use the Comments/Suggest tab. [5]
    • Almost certainly specimens from his entomology collection were acquired by Philip Brookes Mason and then sold on in 1905 following Mason's death: they probably still survive as exhibits in the Dr P B Mason Collection, Museum of Zoology, University College London or in Bolton Museum. [5]
    • Walter's sister was Emma Sarah Gill, 1820 -1905, born at Llyswern Vicarage, The family moved from Breconshire to Kimbolton in 1832. In 1847 Emma married the Rev. Thomas Hutchinson, Vicar of Kimbolton from 1841, and they lived at Grantsfield. He was a nephew of Mrs Mary Wordsworth, nee Hutchinson, the poet's wife. The Hutchinson family were also noted naturalists - the Comma butterfly Polygonis c-album form huthinsoni was named after Emma. [5]
