RELHAN, RICHARD (1754–1823), botanist
"In 1783 Professor Thomas Martyn (1735–1825) gave Relhan all the manuscript notes he had made on Cambridge plants since the publication of his 'Plantæ Cantabrigienses' in 1763. With this assistance Relhan published his chief work, the 'Flora Cantabrigiensis,' in 1785, describing several new plants and including seven plates engraved by James Sowerby." ODNB.
