All the books and manuscripts cited are at Cambridge in the Library of the Department of Plant Sciences (CUB) or the University Library, (CUL) unless otherwise indicated.

A large number of books, mostly old herbals and pre-1800 books, were moved from the Library of the Department of Plant Sciences to the University Library in 1999, where they are on permanent loan and are kept as a separate collection. For further information, please contact Brian Jenkins at the University Library. In general, all the local floras and manuscripts have been retained in the Department but it is possible that some of the books which are cited below as being still at CUB have been moved.

All records given without a source are from the Card Index or from the card index made for the Devil's Ditch.

Hill of Health was the rising ground a little beyond the Huntingdon Tolegate on the south side of the road, as I learn from the Rev. W. Palling, [Pulling?] son-in-law of Relhan. 1807. See notes by J. Fisher A.B. of Christ's College in Berkenhout Ed. 1. The only localities of Camb:shire plants in Relh. Herb. are to be found at the end of this volume. Localities written or underlined with red and species marked (X) with red have been noticed and communicated to me by SW Wanton M.A., who has observed them recently. July 1851. H.

See the beginning of Vol. 2.'
The annotations are both to and in the text as well as on the interleaves. The red and black ink are no longer distinguishable. There are a large number of records with (W.W.N.) after them; a few with S.W.W., J.F(isher) and with Relhan MS. see [2] below. Transcriptions from the Flora as opposed to the Lists, have been made only when they appear to shed more light on a locality, also all records for Wicken Fen, Triplow peat Holes and NBG. The lists at the begining and end of the volumes: [1] Relhan (LINN.) Bab.ann.Relhan. 'Localities extracted from Relhan's Herb. at LINN. Soc. There are no others relating to Cambridgeshire. June 1858. N.B. This Herbarium was afterwards sold and used as waste paper. CCB.' [2] Relhan MS.(List) Bab.ann.Relhan. 'Extracted from an interleaved copy of Relhan's Flora lent to me by his son. 1852. All these are entered in my MS.' double underline = recorded by both SWW and CCB. or perhaps CCB and H. single underlining of Relhan's text could be in black or red. For a full list of SWW and WNN records all their records in these annotated volumes should be consulted, since Babington does not acknowledge other recorders when he himself has also seen it, neither in his MS Flora or 1860 Flora. All Henslow's records have been transcribed by Bab. from Henslow's ann. Relhan, and have therefore not been included here.

Babington, 1859 list. Babington's list of Plants known to CCB to grow in the Wisbech district sent to Peckover in 1859.

Bab. MS. Fl. Babington's Flora in manuscript; 3 vols: Vol.1: pp.1-371. vol.2: pp.371-702. vol.3: 703-964. The Vol. no. is followed by his page number. The MS Flora is mostly as in the published version. However Babington has made long lists of parishes or sites for all the species. In the case of common species where such lists are very long, they have been omitted in his published work, and instead a general description has been given. CCB has throughout amended his records by striking through linking semi-colons ; or initials, presumably when he has found the species in that locality. It is clear that very many more records were made first by Newbould. These alterations have not always been noted . In the first part of the MS Flora CCB has written very clearly 'Cuxton' but has changed this to Croxton in the printed flora. Examples on (Bab.1860- followed by MS.Fl.) pp. 68:217, 82:265, 90:292, 96:310, 112:358, 216:688, 264:844, but he then cleverly changes the written word to Croxton, see pp.116:370, 124:392. 139:442, 151.484, 152:485, 175:556, 179:566, 186:589, 216:688, 264:844. It is probable that 'additions' found in the MS, i.e. localities not in the printed version arise mainly from an oversight by CCB. The 'ommissions' appear to be due to last minute additions to the printed flora, notably Mrs Nash Woodham's records for Shepreth. There are also post 1860 records in the MS. notably W Walton whose records are mostly dated after 1860. (cf also Babington's annotations in his copy of the 1860 Flora). There are numerous differences in the descriptions of localities and the juxtaposition of the two versions often help to identify sites: e.g. Gravel Hill (MS) is the same site as Near the Observatory (1860), although there is also just one record for Gravel Hill near Observatory (1860). Many localities have been abbreviated to a parish name. Where this occurs in the MS. Babington has added details of localities from memory. Conversely he has published only the parish name and left out the deatils in the MS. Most of the alterations have been made in the changes of the 'note form' that appears in the MS into an 'english' version as printed, often changing the order of the words and thereby changing the emphasis of the locality. Only the version in the MS Flora is given below. All records which have no locality are given at the begining. Bab.MS. Flora usually as Bab.1860 unless noted. Number in left margin refers to Babington's Districts. The R number in the top right hand corner refers to Relhan,1820 Flora page. Babington's punctuation: records separated by a full stop are presumed to be by Babington. Records separated by a semi-colon are linked to the intitials appearing at the end. ! Babington has seen a specimen from there, the position of the exclamation point seems irrelevant. See end of Vol. 3 for Babington's Key and index etc. CUB.

After the Methodus 1727, more species were found by John Martyn, Charles Miller and 'myself', [Lyons]. Lyons also changed specific names when the descriptions were not sufficiently distinct from other species, and added + when he was not able to inspect species sufficiently.

Th. M. ann. Meth. & Th. M. ann. Index Loc. (1763?). This consists of a straight copy by Thomas Martyn of his father's (John Martyn) annotations to Ray's Flora,1660. In addition he has added about 90 species not mentioned by his father, and has omitted about 20 species listed by his father. In addition he has added the following localities under which he lists species in his list of localities, as distinct from his annotations in the text. 'Arborough, Chesterton, Clare Hithe, Coe fen, Dunnington [?], Elsworth, Furze Hill, Gurton, Juniper Hill, Moor Barns, Stow, Parker's Piece, Tid St Giles, Triplow.' He has only omitted Stretham Fen, to which locality his father did not add any species. Some of the additions are of course annotated by his father in Ray's Index Locorum. Most of his 'Index Locorum' is then followed in the Herbationes published in his Flora(1763). As a result there is a great deal of repetition and it is difficult to know whether either Martyn saw all the plants they listed, for John Martyn's annotations include Ray's localities. It is tempting to think that only his addtions are underlined, as in Asperula, but in Asplenium adiantum nigrum he also underlines a locality published in Ray. Or perhaps he underlines only the plants he had seen. Thomas Martyn's annotations of his interleaved copy of John Martyn's Methodus is followed by a list of localities and species thereat to back cover, the whole interleaved and annotated by Thomas Martyn with notes, and with many records dated 1759 or 1760. Babington writes (inside cover) 'notes are nearly certainly by T Martyn; they were used by me in the prepn. of my Flora of Cambs'.... but a comparison of a few interesting records selected at random suggest that Babington did not do this very thoroughly. In fact, the book was not given to him (by Newbould) till 1862. CC Babington's Bookplate: ' Given to Charles C. Babington in May 1862 by WW Newbould'. To Botanical Museum by CCB in June 1865.'
