Margaret Bushby Lascelles Cockburn (1829 - 1928) was an artist and amateur ornithologist who lived in the Nilgiris in India. She was born in Salem, India, and her father was the Collector of the District. The family initially visited Kotagiri in summer but settled permanently around 1855 at "Hope Park". Cockburn experimented on tea planting at Alports Estate and made numerous observations on local natural history and many of these were reported in the works of Allan Octavian Hume. She also made paintings of local birds and flora. A collection of her work was bequeathed to the Natural History Museum.
