    LIFE OF GEORGE ELIOT - 1819 - Mary Ann Evans was N born at Arbury Farm, at five oclock this morning. This is an entrv in Mr. Robert Evanss handwriting on the pa e of an old diary that now lies before me, and records, with characteristic precision, the birth of his youngest child, afterwards known to the world as George Eliot. Let us pause for a moment to pay its due homage to the precision, because it was in all probability to this most noteworthy quality of her fathers nature that the future author wasin debted for one of the .-. . S 5 ... a .. . . ... v principal elements OK her awn after success, - the enormous faculty forkaiing ijains. The baby was born on St. Cecilias day, and Mr. Evans, being a good hurchmaht, a kes her, on the 29th November, to be baptised ih tJm wch at Chilvers Coton, - the parish in whi hr F arm lies, - a church destined to irn ressi tself-stron lvo n the childs V . imagination, a d to be known by many people in manv lands afterwards as S h e e r t oCnh urch. L h e f a t hwe ras a remarkable mar, and many of the leading traits in his character are to be found 8 l The farm is also known ss the South Farm, Arbury., in Adam Bede and in Caleb Garth, - although, of course, neither of these is a portrait. He was born in 1773, at Roston Common, in the parish of Norbury, in the county of Derby, son of a George Evans, who carried on the business of builder and carpenter there the Evans family having come originally from Northop, in Flintshire. Robert u7as brought up to the business, and qfter a time changed his residence to Ellastone, in Staffordshire. About 1799, or a little before, he held a farm of Mr. Francis Newdigate at Kirk Hallam, in Derbyshire, and became hisagent. On Sir Roger Newdigates death, the Arbury estate came to Mr. Francis Newdigate for his life, and Mr. Evans accompanied him into Warwickshire in 1806 in the capacity of agent. In 1801 he had married Harriott Poynton, by whom he had two children, - Robert, born 1802, at Ellastone, and Frances Lucy, born 1805, at Kirk Hallam. His first wife died in 1809 and on 8th February, 1813, he married Christiana Pearson, by whom he had three children, - Christiana, born 1814 Isaac, born 1816 and Mary Ann, . born 1819. Shortly after the last childs birth, Robert, the son, became the agent, under his father, for the Kirk Hallam property, and lived there with his sister Frances, who afterwards married a Mr. Houghton. In March, 1820, when the baby girl was only four months old, the Evans family removed to Griff, a charming red-brick, ivy-covered house on the Arbury estate, - the warm little nest where her affections were fledged, - and there George Eliot spent the first twenty-one years of her life. Let us remember what the England was upon which this observant child opened her eyes. The date of her birth was removed from the beginning of the French Revolution by just the same period of time as separates a child born this year, h84, from the beginning of the Crimean War. To a man of forty-six to-day, the latter event seems but of yesterday. It took place at a verv im ressionable eriod of his life. and the re embpance of eve y detail is - perfedtly vivid. Mr. Evans was forty-six when his youngest child was born...
