Edward Lear, 1812 - 1888, artist and writer, lived here.
London County Council

Site: Edward Lear - Seymour Street (1 memorial)

W1, Seymour Street, 30

2016: Douglas Eaton told us the plaque has gone. Checking on Google Street View history: it was still there in July 2009, then number 30 and its neighbour to the east disappeared under scaffolding and wraps, emerging in May 2015 sans plaque. The works included replacing all the plate glass with properly fenestrated windows so the developers did something right. We'll give them a bit longer before we flag this plaque as lost.
