Alfred Swaine Taylor (1806-1880), British forensic toxicologist. Taylor was one of the leading toxicology experts of his time, elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1845. He was a lecturer at Guy's Hospital in London from 1831. His books included 'On poisons in relation to medical jurisprudence and medicine' (1848), and 'The principles and practice of medical jurisprudence' (1865). He also gave evidence in many criminal cases, one of the most celebrated being the 1856 murder trial of British physician William Palmer. Taylor's testimony in relation to strychnine poisoning helped to convict Palmer, who was sentenced to death and executed by hanging.
