John Ray was born in Black Notley (Essex, England). He was a naturalist, zoologist, linguist, and member of the Royal Society. The first exponent of the importance of natural theology, in 1691 he wrote The Wisdom of God in the Works of Creation. It was a treatise on natural theology based upon his botanical and zoological observations that was destined to exert a profound influence on many scientists of the 18th century.
