It is little known that Charles Darwin was a justice of the peace for many years. The original case records do not survive. However a new book ‘Charles Darwin: Justice of the peace. The complete records (1857-1882)’ by Tembusu Fellow, Dr John van Wyhe and Christine Chua, have reconstructed a fascinating new chapter to the life of the famous naturalist based on local press reports.
