His father was a country parson and Carroll had ten brothers and sisters.

Educated at home, the young Lewis Carroll was a precocious reader, and received a private education by the time he reached his teens. From schooling in Rugby, Lewis Carroll attended Christ Church at the same time, his mother passed away.

Throughout his life Carroll suffered with stammering, although it was reported he could sing well.

In 1857 he met John Ruskin, and developed friendships with Dante Rossetti and other pre-Raphaelite artist’s like William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millias.

In 1865 Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was published, illustrated by the artist Sir John Tenniel. The book bought wealth and success, and was followed in 1872 by the sequel, Through the Looking Glass, published after the death of his father.
