It was 17 Finsbury Circus, and 'Tailours' Chigwell. He left Ģ25 000, which was a goodly sum. The house in Chigwell sounds very handsome with 16 rooms, but the poor old boy lived with two sisters-in-law, two nieces and three female servants, so as far as he was concerned it was probably only 15 rooms, the bathroom being out of bounds.
Thanks Dave. Well, in 1911 in the electoral register, one Arthur Philip Gibbons was listed at 17 Finsbury Circus. However in the 1911 census he seems to be at Eldon St (no number), EC. Eldon Street was associated with Brown :
Brown was at 17 Finsbury Circus in 1901 and 1891. In 1881 the number was 16 Finsbury Circus.
In 1901 there are two female Gibbons listed at 17 Finsbury Circus, described as cousins, so I can't help feeling that Arthur Gibbons was a relative of Brown (Arthur was also a surgeon, and that's probably him with his wife mentioned in the newspaper item).
