This chapter details the childhood of Rupert T. Gould. Gould was born, on 16 November 1890, into an upper middle class English family. By the time of his birth, the Gould family had settled down into the upper-middle classes, wealthy in family connections, but not itself particularly well off. Typically for such Victorian families, bringing up the children was the single focus. Rupert's parents' priority was ensuring a sound education and a firm but caring childhood, as was imbuing a sense of family continuity in the off-spring by emphasising the importance of knowing their ancestry. Rupert's father was William Monk Gould (1858-1923) an organist, teacher and composer, and his mother was Agnes Hilton Gould (1860-1937), always known affectionately within the family simply as ‘Dodo’.
