[1] Per birth certificate (a civil requirement since 1837), Marshall was born at 66 Charlotte Row, Bermondsey, London. Disguising the circumstances of his lower birth, Marshall often gave his birthplace as Clapham, London, or Surrey. Even Keynes in his Memoir on Alfred Marshall erroneously stipulates Clapham.
