Note on Husband: Charles David BADHAM

Oxford Dictionary of National Biography (2013 online) entry:

Badham, Charles David (1805 - 1857), naturalist, was born in London on 27 August 1805, the eldest son of

Charles Badham (1780 - 1845), physician and classical scholar, and his first wife, Margaret Campbell, a first

cousin of Thomas Campbell (1777 - 1844). He was educated at Westminster School, Emmanuel College,

Cambridge, and Pembroke College, Oxford, from where he graduated MD in 1833. After taking his degree he

was appointed a Radcliffe travelling fellow of the University of Oxford, residing for some time on the continent,

especially at Rome and at Paris, where he practised medicine, having become a fellow of the College of

Physicians in 1834. On returning to England in 1845 he was forced to give up medical practice for health

reasons, choosing instead to enter the church. He was ordained deacon in Norwich on 31 January 1847 and

priest the following year, becoming curate first of Wymondham and then of East Bergholt, Suffolk. He married

Anna, daughter of James Deacon Hume (1774 - 1842), on 8 April 1847.

As well as contributing to Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine and Fraser's Magazine, Badham wrote several works

of natural history, the first of which, The Question Concerning the Sensibility of Insects (1837), he published in

Paris under the pseudonym Scarabaeus. His work on edible fungi, while being greeted with some derision, is

said to have introduced many varieties of mushrooms to the English table. Perhaps his most famous work was

Prose Halieutics, or, Ancient and Modern Fish Tattle (1854), a compendium of fish lore and recipes. Badham died

on 14 July 1857 in East Bergholt.

Charles Badham, eldest son of Dr. Charles Badham of London, was educated first at Westminster School. He

entered Emmanuel College, Cambridge, in 1822 and won a scholarship two years later. He took his degree in

1826. After studying medicine at Pembroke College, Oxford, from 1829 to 1833, he practised in Rome and Paris

for several years until ill health forced him to abandon his medical career. He returned from abroad in 1845 and

was ordained in 1847. For the remainder of his life, while holding curacies in East Anglia, he devoted himself to

natural history. He was a frequent contributor to Blackwood's and Fraser's Magazines, and published three

works, Insect Life (1845), The Esculent Funguses of England (1847) and Prose Halieutics, or Ancient and Modern

Fish Tattle (1854). He died at East Bergholt in Suffolk.
