1842 - 1924
Marshall was born in Charlotte Row, Bermondsey near to its unwholesome tannery area - the location, since redeveloped, was to the north side of Long Lane and east of Crosby Row. His family relocated for a time to the Bell Green area of Sydenham in southeast London before moving to the more prosperous area of Clapham. Though the house at 5 Russell Place, Larkhall Rise no longer exists the road is still there. He was schooled at Merchant Taylors School, then in Suffolk Lane in the City of London.
