    Text I am not family but have an interest in Dr Walter Battershell Gill as an Entomologist who was tutored by my g g grandfather, 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. Battershell 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 I have failed to establish whether or not it survived and, if so, the present location. As a long shot, could it have been retained by a member of the family? Messages for Brian Bouchard will be forwarded to him - use the Comments/Suggest tab.
