Mr. George Darcy is the father of Fitzwilliam and Georgiana Darcy, and the godfather of George Wickham. He married Lady Anne Fitzwilliam, one of the daughters of the Earl Fitzwilliam. He had both of his children with her, but at different intervals of their lives. His only son, Fitzwilliam, is named after the earls Fitzwilliam. George Darcy also had a niece through marriage, Anne de Bourgh, and was the brother-in-law of Lady Catherine de Bourgh of Rosings Park.
While he lived, he dearly loved his godson like he was his own blood, and intended for him to be a clergyman in their parish. George later spurned his godfather's wishes for him, but blamed it on Darcy's son and heir, Fitzwilliam.
Notes and referencesEdit
- ↑ It is conjectured that George is Darcy's first name, due to the tradition in the Regency era and before to name a boy after his godfather. In this case, it would be George Wickham, which would indicate that Mr. Darcy's father was likely named George. It is further indicated in his daughter's name—the feminine equivalent of "George" at the time.
