2014: Via Facebook Martin Evans suggests this man for the name panel at IC.  He was the first Professor of Metallurgy at the School of Mines so we agree, he must be our man.

Born Nottingham.  Trained in medicine but spent his most of his life studying metallurgy, in particular processes for extracting metals from ores.  On his death his large and important collection of metallurgical specimens was purchased by the South Kensington Museum and is now with the Science Museum.
