Alfred William Bennett (1833-1902) was born in Clapham, a small town within today’s greater London, England. He was a botanist and publisher, and was a member of the British Association party that visited the Bell Farm on Sept. 14, 1884.

In 1858 he married Katharine Richardson; they had no children. He was largely self taught, but for many years was a Lecturer on Botany at St. Thomas Hospital and at Bedford College.

Bennett, a Quaker, was publisher and editor for "The Friend", a Quaker weekly; as well as editor of the "Journal of Nature of the Royal Microscopical Society". In 1897 he also published "The Flora of the Alps".
