Error corrections or clarifications
* His parents were not thrilled
that his birth fell on Guy Fawkes Day (November 5th),
so they changed his birth to "November 3rd," and
celebrated it on that fabricated date throughout
his life. The Encyclopedia Britannica
Book of the Year 1968 erroneously reports the
aforementioned fictitious date of birth as his
actual date of birth.
NOTE: The address at which he was born, later
became 34 Tite Street, Chelsea, London, England.
