He liked his fitba. Played in goals for Portsmouth amateurs.

But, as you say, left Embra at a young age. Can't see any obvious signs of him being one of us.

He was into spiritualism.... so ask him yourself. [emoji4]

he would have been about 16 when hibs were formed and was educated at Stonyhurst in Lancashire

he was from an irish catholic family, although later became agnostic / spiritualist hence the ADC centre on palmerston street)

born in Picardy place at the hibs end of town

he trained at Edinburgh medical school 1876 onwards but the school wasn't at Teviot then


he namechecks lauriston in a study in scarlet, his first Sherlock story

he liked football and played to a decent level

don't know if there is documentation linking him to hibs but he certainly wouldn't have been a jambo

Conan Doyle and Robert Louis Stevenson were Hibs fans. Sir Walter Scott, a far more establishment character, was a yam. I read that somewhere but it might not be true 😉

Conan Doyle was baptised in St Mary's RC Cathedral in 1859. His father, Charles, was of Irish Catholic descent and his mother, Mary, was an Irish Catholic. I imagine if he'd remained in Edinburgh long enough he'd have been a Hibee (certainly not a Yam anyway).

Once you've eliminated all other teams in Edinburgh because they're *****, that team that remains, regardless of how improbable must be the Hibees.

Hibbie he was. My spirit guide told me tonight. They just call him Doyler up there, by the way.

ACD lived for a while at Lonsdale terrace at the west end of the meadows and also at the east end of George square

I think there is a plaque on the wall in George square and Lonsdale terrace

there is an adjacent address - 22b George square, which may be the origin of 221b baker street, his fictitious address in London

apparently baskervilles hall, as described, is a dead ringer for stonyhurst


walter scott may have coined the jambo's name but died decades before even they would 'claim' they were 'formed' i.e. 1874

the stevensons lived in Heriot row - in the hibs side of town

Maybes he was a St. Bernards fan? Stevenson that is as their ground was just off Eyre Place.

There is a Sherlock Holmes short story collection that surfaced a few years back that kinda confirmed it, included in the story titles were the following:

The Case of the Missing Defender at Dens
The Mystery of the Disappearing Submariner
The Invigorating Tale of the Famous Five
The Interesting Mystery of Joseph Tortolano
The Unseen Work of Brian from Hamilton
The Adventure of the Forgotten Seats
The Frenchman's Missing Teeth
The Adventure of Queen Anne's Jacket
The Henderson Delivery
The Adventure of the Six Pack
The Positioning of Mathias Jack
