Regarding George Maw: The following comes from _Charles Darwin: A Companion_,
by R.B. Freeman (Wm. Dawson & Sons Ltd., 1978).  It's not much, but perhaps
a start.  This is a paraphrase:

  Maw, George.  1832-1912.  Geologist and botanist.  Of Benthall Green.
  July 1861 Maw reviewed the Origin in _Zoologist_.  Darwin to Lyell:
  "evidently a thoughtful man" (Life & Letters, 2:376).  Maw provided
  _Drosophyllum_ for Darwin's _Insectivorous Plants_.
