Tennyson free pdf Excerpt from Tennyson: 1809-1909- A Lecture In one of the prettiest parts of the Lincoln Wolds, about halfway between Alford - six miles off on the East - and Horncastle on the West, and almost the same distance to the S. W. from Spilsby and Halton, the homes of Tennyson's intimate friends, the Franklins and Rawnsleys, in a valley almost surrounded by hills, lies the picturesque little village of Somersby. Hither in June, 1808, came Dr. Tennyson, as Rector of the parish, with his wife and their son Frederick- (George, the eldest, had died in infancy, ) and here in July, 1808, was born Charles, and in 1809 Alfred. He is entered in the baptismal register of August 8th, in his father's neat small handwriting, as "Alfred, son of George Clayton and Elizabeth Tennyson, baptized, born August 6th." The figure "6" looks at first sight like a 5, but certainly is a 6, and though the poet always declared that he was born a few minutes before midnight whilst as yet it was August 5th, his birthday was always reckoned from the first morning of his life, August 6th, 1809. The Doctor and his wife lived at Somersby for twenty-three years, and all the rest of the children were born there, in the following order: - Mary and Emily, Edward, Arthur and Septimus (the seventh son), Matilda, Cecilia and Horatio. Of all these, Matilda alone is left to-day, Cecilia having died on the 18th of last March(1909) in her ninety-second year. Cecilia married Professor Edmund Lushington, and his wedding day is for ever celebrated in the last canto of In Memoriam. Emily's memory is enshrined in the same immortal work, as the betrothed of Arthur Hallam. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
