This chapter focuses on Angell's family, his respect for his father (a successful shopkeeper and Conservative councillor), his secularist reaction against his mother's evangelical faith, his schooling in Hatfield, Holbeach, and St Omer, his training in shorthand at a London commercial college, and his employment as a journalist in Weymouth and Geneva. It shows how the adolescent revolutionism that prompted him to publish a political pamphlet at the age of 17 co-existed with a desire for worldly success that led him to decide a year later to seek his fortune in California.

Keywords:   family, secularist, journalist, revolutionism, Holbeach, St Omer, Weymouth, Geneva
