Salisbury Court, London, is the street where the great diarist, Samuel Pepys, was born on 23 February 1633. His father had a tailor shop here and the family lived in the same house, which no longer exists. A Blue Plaque marks the place where the house stood.

Just outside Trafalgar Square, and in front of Nelson's Column is this 1633 statue of Charles I.

 

Cromwell ordered that it be destroyed, but it was hidden, and later re-erected by Charles II during the restoration in 1675.

 

It is a bronze statue, made in 1633 for Lord Treasurer Weston by Hubert le Sueur. The crown saved it and put it here in 1675. The carved work of the pedestal was done by Joshua Marshall.

Samuel Pepys was born in Salisbury Court, in the City of London, on 23 February 1633. The Blue Plaque shows the years as 1632 because, until 1752, the civil or legal year in England began on 25 March (Lady Day), therefore, officially, February still belonged to the old year.
