Julia Stephen with Adrian, c.1886


Leslie and Julia’s fourth child, Adrian Leslie Stephen, was born on 27 October 1883. He was named after his father and Adrian Scope, “a fine old regicide from whom the Stephens claimed descent.” According to Leslie Stephen, Adrian “touched a very soft place” in his mother’s heart.

Adrian went to Cambridge and was tall like his father, six feet five inches. In October 1914 Adrian married Karin Costelloe with whom he had two daughters. Adrian and Karin Stephen became psychoanalysts in 1926.
