John Henry Newman was born in London on February 21, 1801 to John Newman and Jemima Foudrinier. Described as studious and introvert, Newman spent his formative years in Ealing where his first attempts to write (both prose and verse) manifested at age 11. He later attended Trinity College in Oxford. The Oxford Newman was soon to love so much seemed to have little to offer. He was not pleased with the weather and grew weary with the crowd. His father's ambition in sending him to university had been that he would be call to the Bar, but Newman had other things in mind. He turned down numerous tutorship offered to him to pursue his ambition for a fellowship at Oriel.
