Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the formative years of Frederick Temple. Temple was born in 1821, during the time when his father was the resident in Santa Maura, and he lived in the Ionian Islands until age nine. When the family returned to England in 1830, Major Temple bought a farm in Devon, which became their home for several years. He was the thirteenth child of a family of fifteen, only eight of whom survived beyond childhood. Frederick attended Blundell’s School which led directly to his admission to Balliol College, Oxford.
