Great George Street - Birthplace of John Nelson Darby

Westminster






Description:

John Nelson Darby was born here, in the shadow of the Palace of Westminster, on Wednesday November 18th 1800.

The house No 9, was renumbered around 1820 to No 10.

Its history, and ownership by the Arby family until 1837 can be found here: http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=67587

Almost all the old houses have now gone, only it seems No 11 remains. I have not been able to determine exactly when or why No 10 was pulled down, tough evidently was after 1923 as that is the last picture that shows it here. Now a  much larget building occupies Nos. 8-10.

JND born 1800 I think not 1900. I believe I am related through my Great Grandmother Ruth Darby (born 5th December 1850)who had definite connections to the Darbys of Leap Castle but I can't find the missing link!
