Marylebone London

Click here for a Description and History from 1868 Gazetteer.

MARYLEBONE in 1868 was a parish and parliamentary borough in the Holborn division of the hundred of Ossulstone, county Middlesex. Its name came from a small 'burn, or bourne' which also gave name to Eyeburn, or Tyburn, which is now underground.

The Austin family, my ancestors, lived at Marylebone. James John Austin was born here, the son of James Atkin Austin and Mary Maria Scarfe - just a half block from St. Mary's parish church, Paddington.
