History

50 St. James’s Street was leased to the club in 1823 and after its closure, it continued to be utilized as a clubhouse, initially for a brief period by the fleeting Naval, Military, and County Service Club, but from 1874 to 1976 it functioned as the Devonshire Club.

Crockford Casino BarWilliam Crockford born in 1775, to William & Mary Ann Crockford, had his baptism done at St Clement Dane on February12, 1776. His life started as a helper to his father’s shop, selling fish, next to Temple Bar (the original location of that signpost gate – now to the side of St Paul’s Cathedral). His acumen at calculations paid him dividends as he rapidly took to gambling and at the end of several lengthy sessions collected enough funds to get him on his way to Regency club land. He got his hands on a site in St James’s Street where he unlocked a building which eventually came to be known as the most celebrated gaming house of Europe – “Crockford’s”. He took the aristocracy for a ride, in the process collecting the utmost wealth imaginable, allowing him to build homes at 11 Carlton House Terrace (that later became Prime Minister William Gladstone’s home) and at Panton House, Newmarket.
