      Joseph Joshua Green, collector and antiquary, was born on 15 April 1854, the second son of Joshua and Elizabeth Green of Stansted Mountfitchet, Essex, who were Quakers. He was educated initially at home, and from 1866 at Sidcot School for Quakers in the Mendips, where he developed an interest in natural history and botany. On the completion of his education he went into the family business, Joshua Green & Co., general merchants, of Stanstead, Essex. From 1870 he began to collect the autographs of distinguished contemporaries and figures from history and continued to add to these collections for the rest of his life. He made a special study of the Puritans and the free churches and compiled histories of some of the oldest Quaker families. He was president of the Friends Historical Society in 1908-9, and contributed to its journal. He died at Godwyn Lodge, Hastings, on 24 October 1921.
