Heine, Ferdinand (jnr) 1809-1894
Heineken, C. M.D.
I have found some info regarding a Heineken that lived on Madeira at
the appropriate time. He was a naturalist and physician who lived in Madeira from 1826 until
his death (variously given as 1829 or (probably the correct date) January 4, 1830)
He was most likely German. One source referred to him as English.
Strangely enough that is the source that I trust the most regarding his date of death.
His first name is variously given as follows:
- darwin.lib.cam.ac.uk - "C. Heineken" died 1829
- humboldt.mpiwg-berlin.mpg.de - "Karl Heineken" date of death implied as being around 1829
- ceha-madeira.net/eluciario/crono5.html - "Carlos Heineken" died 1/4 1830
It is possible that he signed some of his correspondence using the
Spanish/Portugese form of his name "Carlos" rather than the German "Karl".
The Richmond Index lists the author of this taxon as "C. Heineken, M.D."
Charles/Carl/Carlos/Karl Heineken, M.D.
