Charles Kingsley

Person  Male  Born 12/6/1819  Died 23/1/1875

Categories: Literature, Religion

Born Devon. Christian Socialist and amateur naturalist. Supported his friend, Charles Darwin, when the Origin of Species was published. Wrote 'The Water-Babies', 1863, initially for his 4-year old son. This described the miserable life of a child chimney-sweep and its publication contributed to the debate which led to the outlawing of this employment. Died Eversley, Hampshire, where he had been rector.
