Charles William Peach (September 30, 1800-February 28, 1886) was a British naturalist and geologist.
Plaque commemorating C W Peach, placed on the former Customs House at Gorran Haven, Cornwall, UK by the Royal Cornwall Geological Society
He was born at Wansford in Northamptonshire; his father at the time was a saddler and harness-maker, and afterwards became an innkeeper, farming about eighty acres (0.32 km²) of land. He received an elementary education at Wansford and at Folkingham in Lincolnshire; and assisted for several years in the inn and farm.
In 1824 he was appointed riding officer in the HM Coastguard at Weybourne in Norfolk. Seaweeds and other marine organisms now attracted his attention, and these he zealously collected. .His duties during the next few years led him to remove successively to Sheringham, Hasboro (Happisburgh), Cromer, and Cley, all in Norfolk.^ All I can suggest is to back off on the watering and fertilizer and allow things to dry to determine if the tree will recover next year.

In the course of his rambles he met the Rev. James Layton, curate at Catfield, who lent him books and assisted in laying the foundations of accurate knowledge. About the year 1830 he was transferred to Charmouth in Dorset, thence to Beer, and Paignton in Devon, and to Gorran Haven near Mevagissey in Cornwall.
Here he continued to pursue his zoological studies and supplied many specimens to George Johnston, who was then preparing his History of the British Zoophytes (1838). It was here too that he first found fossils in some of the older rocks previously regarded as not fossil-bearing; the discovery of which proved the presence of Bala Beds (Ordovician or Lower Silurian) in the neighbourhood of Gorran Haven.
.In 1841 he read a paper before the British Association at Plymouth On the Fossil Organic Remains found on the south-east coast of Cornwall, and in 1843 he brought before the Royal Geological Society of Cornwall an account of his discovery of fish remains in the Devonian slates near Polperro.^ British Airports Vol 1 South East England Cheats .
