Stonecutter, of Dublin. Arthur Darley, junior, stonecutter, appears in Wilson's Dublin Directory for the years 1791 to 1793. In 1791 his address is given as 'Barleyfields', in 1792 and 1793 as '1 Cavendish Row'. He was not a son of ARTHUR DARLEY [2]  ARTHUR DARLEY [2] but was possibly his nephew Arthur Darley (1766-1845), younger son of GEORGE DARLEY [2] GEORGE DARLEY [2] . This Arthur Darley was the father of the poet George Darley, who was born in Kensal Green, London, in 1795; another of his sons was born in New York in 1800.(1) An Arthur Darley was admitted to the Freedom of the City of Dublin at Midsummer 1792 as a member of the Guild of Masons by virtue of birth.(2)
