    The confusion stems from the fact that the incident in the novel was based on an actual occurance - "The Greenwich Bomb Outrage" which occured in 1894. The novel is set in 1886.

    I was confused about the date as well. It's understandable that the site got the date wrong. The Penguin edition of the book says, on the back, that the attempt on the Greenwich Observatory was in 1894. But in the story itself it was a completely different date. The site probably just read it off the back.
