Charles Kingsley

Ithaca, New York: Cornell University Press, (1934), pp. vii, 207.


Stanley Everett Baldwin

Prepared by Michael Steer

The book’s purpose is to present an account of the social, economic and religious problems Kingsley faced and provide an appreciation of his work as an author. He was born in Holne, the elder of two sons of the Reverend Charles Kingsley and his wife Mary Lucas Kingsley. His brother, Henry Kingsley, also became a novelist. He spent his childhood in Clovelly, where his father was Curate 1826–1832 and Rector 1832–1836, at Barnack, Northamptonshire and was educated at Bristol Grammar School and Helston Grammar School before studying at King's College London, and the University of Cambridge. He was a broad church priest of the Church of England, a university professor, historian and novelist. He is particularly associated with the West Country and northeast Hampshire. He was a friend and correspondent with Charles Darwin.
