  1. Thanks for all the links, but I think you’ve got your Jos. Wedgwoods mixed up… The one born in 1730 was Jos. W the First, Darwin’s grandfather. His father-in-law (and uncle) was Jos. W the Second (born 1769).

  2. Thanks, Richard, for that correction! Sometimes I try to do these posts quickly, since I’ve gathered so many links for the week. My mistake….
