Beatrix Potter was born in South Kensington
London in 1866. Educated at home by a succession
of governesses, she had little opportunity to mix
with other children. Even Potter's younger
brother, Bertram, was rarely at home he was sent
to boarding school, leaving Beatrix alone with
her pet animals.
3
She had frogs and newts and even a pet bat. She
also had two rabbits -- the first was Benjamin,
whom she described as "an impudent, cheeky little
thing", while the second was Peter, whom she took
everywhere with her, even on the occasional
outings, on a little lead. Potter would watch
these animals for hours on end, sketching them.
Gradually the sketches became better and better,
developing her talents from an early age.

Potter's father, Rupert William Potter
(18321914), although trained as a barrister,
spent his days at gentlemen's clubs and rarely
practised. Her mother, Helen Potter née Leech
(18391932), the daughter of a cotton merchant,
spent her time visiting or receiving visitors.
The family was supported by both parents'
inherited incomes.Every summer, Rupert Potter
would rent a country house firstly Dalguise
House in Perthshire, Scotland for the eleven
summers of 1871 to 1881,then later one in the
English Lake District.
5
Potter eventually wrote 23 books. These were
published in a small format, easy for a child to
hold and read. Her writing efforts abated around
1920 due to poor eyesight. The Tale of Little Pig
Robinson was published in 1930 however, the
actual manuscript was one of the first to be
written and far predates this publication date.
