Abstract

Isle of Man-born Hugh Coleman Davidson (1852-1934) wrote fiction, and perhaps his best known work was The Green Hills by the Sea (1887). Published in three volumes, this work is described as a ‘Manx story’ full of the island’s folklore. Davidson was also a gardening journalist, penning many works on horticulture such as Rational Fruit Culture. Truby read this particular work as evidenced by his ever-present ticking and marginalia. Vivian King, a near relative, said that ‘Sir Truby was a great gardener… As all the Kings are’.
