The Reverend John Brodie Innes (1817–1894) was a close friend of Charles Darwin.[1]

As John Innes he became Curate of Farnborough in Kent in 1842, and made the acquaintance of Darwin who moved to Down House in the nearby village of Downe in the same year. Innes became Vicar of Downe in 1846, and continued to correspond with Darwin after 1869 when Innes moved to take up an inherited estate at Milton Brodie, Forres in Scotland, and changed his name to reflect his position as chief of the Brodies of Milton branch of Clan Brodie.[1][2]
