Grand voyageur, Staunton était devenu membre de la Royal Society le 15 février 1787.C’est le premier occidental à découvrir l’utilisation d’un goût proche de l’orange dans le thé, qui deviendra le thé Earl Grey, en Chine en 1793. Aujourd’hui, c’est la bergamote, inconnue en Chine à cette époque, qui est principalement utilisée pour parfumer les thé Earl Grey. Le Saunton Earl Grey, encore fabriqué, est le thé actuel qui ressemble le plus à l’original.Son fils, Sir George Thomas Staunton (1781-1859), est célèbre pour ses études du chinois car il avait accompagné son père. .

  • Sir George Leonard Staunton, 1st Baronet (10 April 1737 – 14 January 1801) was an employee of the East India Company and a botanist.He was born in Cargins, Co Galway, Ireland and educated at the Jesuit College, Toulouse, France (abtaining an MD in 1758) and the School of Medicine in Montpellier, France. He was awarded a DCL by Oxford University in 1790.He initially practised as a physician in the West Indies but switched to law and was made Attorney-General in Grenada in 1779. In 1784, he accompanied his lifelong friend George, Lord McCartney, whom he first met in the West Indies, to Madras to negotiate peace with Tipu Sultan, for which service Staunton was created a baronet of Ireland, of Cargins in the County of Galway on 31 October 1785.He was elected in February 1787 a Fellow of the Royal Society.In 1793, he was named Secretary to the British mission to the Chinese Imperial court. This diplomatic and trade mission would be headed by Lord Macartney. Although the Macartney Embassy returned to London without obtaining any concession from China, the mission could have been termed a success because it brought back detailed observations. Staunton was charged with producing the official account of the expedition after their return. This multi-volume work was taken chiefly from the papers of Lord Macartney and from the papers of Sir Erasmus Gower, who was Commander of the expedition. Sir Joseph Banks, the President of the Royal Society, was responsible for selecting and arranging engraving of the illustrations in this official record.He died at his London house, 17 Devonshire Street, on 14 January 1801 and was buried in Westminster Abbey, where a monument by Sir Francis Chantrey is erected to his memory. The baronetcy, his Irish estate at Clydagh, County Galway and his London home were all inherited by his only son, George Thomas Staunton.
