English men of science: their nature and nurture
Galton, Francis
is ranked the Rev. Howard Hinton, a leading 
Baptist minister, who was a son of one of the 
sisters in the previous generation, and is father 
of a well-known aurist. 
Fourth generation.—6 males and 9 females 
now living, and some few others who are de¬ 
ceased ; of these, 5 males and 1 female deserve 
special notice :—(1) Rev. Isaac Taylor, author of 
“Words and Places,” of “ The Famity Pen,” and 
of “Etruscan Researches;” (2) Josiah Gilbert, 
author of “The Dolomite Mountains;” (3) Joseph 
Gilbert, F.R.S., eminent for his chemical and 
physiological researches in their relation to agri¬ 
culture (the paternal race of Gilbert had also 
a marked type) ; (4) Thomas Martyn Herbert, 
Independent minister, scholar, and writer ; (5) 
Edward Gilbert Herbert, of the Chancery bar, 
who died young of diphtheria ; (1) Helen Taylor, 
authoress of “ Sabbath Bells.” 
Wedgewood.—This family is curious for the 
sporadic character of its ability, as shown by 
the number of its members in rather distant 
relationships who have become distinguished.
