Word for 11/9 – Detect

In 2005 while walking around a section of  Dulwich, London, England
my husband was able to detect a connection between these 2 street names:     

One is the title of a novel, the other  is part of the title of a novel & the surname of the main character,  but both relate to the same author.  Hint:  This author wrote under a pen name & is buried in Highgate Cemetery, Highgate, London in an area reserved for religious dissenters or agnostics.

Can you detect who the author is?   I’ll leave the answer under comments.

  1. The author is George Eliot (Mary Anne Evans). Romola, 1863, is a historical novel set in 15th century Florence. Daniel Deronda, 1876. is a social satire & Eliot’s last completed novel. The houses along these streets may have been built not long after these novels were published.
