Darwin more likely than not got the term 'natural selection' from Patrick Matthew's 1831 publication

Miracle Double Immaculate Conceptions of the Blessed Virgins Darwin and Wallace of Matthew's prior published hypothesis of natural selection

'
We know that Darwin claimed he got the term "natural selection" from reading the work of breeders, but could never say from where. And we know that Matthew was the only breeder to come close to it with his natural process of selection. We know also that the term "natural selection" was not coined by Darwin. Finally, we know that Darwin did not originate the theory of natural selection. Simply, to demonstrate the persistence of the science myth that Darwin coined the term and originated the concept of natural selection, Table 6 lists 21 authors perpetuating it.'
