This chapter examines the childhood and early life of Hensley Henson, an Anglican priest who also served as the Bishop of Durham in England. Henson was from a religious family in London, England. Though he grew up reading theological books he hated emotional sectarian religion. He entered the Broadstairs Collegiate School when he was fourteen years old and was later influenced by his headmaster to study at Oxford University. In October 1881 Henson matriculated at Oxford and entered a society remote from everything he knew.
