About Job Horsley Darling


[brother of GD]

Born Bamburgh, 30 December 1810 Died Newcastle-upon-Tyne, 6 December 1830, age 19

From Grace Darling website

Job Darling was the second son and five years older than Grace. He was christened Job Horsley after his old grandfather, then in his late seventies. Brought up on Brownsman Island he would have been 15 when the Darlings moved to Longstone, prompting him to leave the Farnes and make his way in the world. He moved to Newcastle and was apprenticed there as a joiner, like his brother William was in Alnwick. A letter to his father shows that his employer was very satisfied with him. In December 1830 he was planning to come home for Christmas and spend his 20th birthday there when he was suddenly taken ill and tragically died of a fever. He is buried in the Darling family grave at Bamburgh.
