The Essex Field Club LDPEM
The Essex Field Club Seaweed Collection comprises over 500 herbarium sheets, the material being collected mainly between 1830 and 1870 with minor additions up to 1910. The two principle herbaria are those of Dr Anthony Southby and Mr E. G. Varenne. Southby's specimens are mainly from Jersey but with some from around the British coastline and from Australia. Varenne's specimens were collected from various locations around Britain. The post 1870 additions to the collection are mainly from the Orwell and Stour estuaries.
