Charles Alfred Matley
In the 1930s, Matley was appointed Government Geologist for Jamaica and under his tenure a ground water assessment for the island was prepared. In addition, while on the island he collected one of the most extensive collection of Jamaican fossils.
Matley was awarded the Murchison Medal in 1929 by the Geological Society of London. The standard author abbreviation Matley is used to indicate this individual as the author when citing a formal faunal record.
He married Sarah A. Loach in Birmingham in 1891.
