Here´s some additional info on yet another guy I stumbled upon along the way, commemorated in the eponym .....
gulliveri as in:
• the invalid (earlier long-debated subspecies) Gulliver's White-eye Zosterops (luteus) "gulliveri "RAMSAY & CASTELANU 1877 (here) as "Zosterops (Tephras?) Gulliveri" [today most often treated as a synonym of Zosterops luteus GOULD 1843]:
We apparently missed an interesting speech by Local historian Helen Lucas, of Townsville’s Catholic Archives, held 10 May 2016 (here, with a a photo of old "Tom).
Also see this Master thesis by Ian Fraser, 2003 (p.155). As well as Mr. Gulliver's Obituary, published in Townsville Daily Bulletin, 15th of June 1831 (here) , or see the short notice of his Death in the Brisbane Courier, 18th of June 1931 (here).
Not to confuse with his brother and companion Benjamin Thomas Gulliver.
PS. The same Paper (of the OD) also includes a readworthy reprimand to Mr. Diggles, in "kindly spirit" on "Poephila atropygialis", on the page 382. That´s the way to do it.

Zoonomen cites it from the Brisbane Courier of 5 Aug, however: [here].
(In any case, not from Ramsay & Castelnau, notwithstanding the reprimand.)
