Reverend Telford Varley (1886 to 1938)
From the text: The New Forest, as might be supposed, is a remarkably good collecting-ground, not only for Lepidoptera, but also for beetles, of which there are many rare species, and several that are found nowhere else.
Wood names are numerous. Clearings are "cleres," as Kingsclere, Burghclere, and Highclere. "wood" occurs in Woodhay (Wood-hedge), Odiham (woodyham). "holt," "hurst," "shaw," all meaning wood, in Linkenholt (wood of limes), Brockenhurst (badger's wood) and Bramshaw. Woods growing down the slopes of a hill are hanging woods, or "hangers," as in Oakhanger, and wild life is reflected in "Wolvesey" (Wolves' Isle), Wolmer (wolves' mere or wolves'pond), and Brockenhurst as mentioned above.
