Frederick Bailey was the Colonial Botanist in Queensland 1881-1915. He had earlier been appointed by the Queensland Government as botanist to investigate the cause of diseases affecting livestock and plants. Frederick Manson collected plant specimen all over Queensland and in British New Guinea and made an important contribution to the naming and classification of eucalypts. His son was John Frederick Bailey and his grandson was Cyril Tenison White.

After arriving in Adelaide in 1839, Bailey partnered his father and brother in a nursery at Hackney, near Adelaide. He then made a short visit to the Bendigo goldfields. Bailey eventually moved to Queensland where he set up his own seed supply store and plant collection business. He soon gained respect as a botanist, obtaining many distinguished career positions. Frederick Bailey's name was given to more than 50 species of plants. He published many significant volumes documenting Queensland's flora include the seven volume (1899-1905) and (1874).
