Naturalist. Born at 62 (the site of which is now number 271) High Street, Epping, Essex. He was the author of the first catalogue of British butterflies and moths, and named a number of new species. His moth collection is held at the Natural History Museum. Died at the same place of his birth. Not to be confused with his cousin Henry Doubleday (1810-1902).

We have collected memorials for just 5 people who were born and died in the same building: Sir Ashton Lever, Sir Herbert Baker, Henry Croft, Felix Slade and Doubleday. The two Sirs were born and died in their family stately homes, Slade in his wealthy family's home, Croft in the Workhouse and Doubleday in the family grocers shop, run by his father before him.
