Earl Street was in Marylebone, running more or less west to east from
Edgeware Road to Lisson Grove. It ended just about at Marylebone Station, so
your forebears would have lived at the Lisson Grove end, I surmise. If you
look for Broadley Street on a modern map, you should be close.
By the way, how do you pronounce Marylebone?
