Gray's Elegy in a Country Churchyard free pdf Excerpt from Gray's Elegy in a Country Churchyard: And Other Selections Thomas Gray was born in Cornhill, London, December 26, 1716. His father, Philip Gray, was a scrivener and broker, a man of violent temper and jealous disposition, with some symptoms of madness. He abandoned his family, and died abroad, leaving but little of his reputed wealth. His mother was Dorothy Antrobus Gray, most touchingly described by the poet, in the inscription placed on her tombstone, as "the tender mother of many children, one of whom alone had the misfortune to survive her." The other eleven children died in infancy. Mrs. Gray supported her son by keeping, with her sister, a millinery shop in London, and it was altogether through her care and industry that Gray enjoyed the advantages of education. In 1727 he was sent to Eton College, under the auspices of his two uncles, Robert and Thomas Antrobus, the former of whom was assistant to a master of Eton, and a fellow of Peterhouse College, and the latter a fellow of King's College, Cambridge. At Eton he met Horace Walpole, son of the prime minister, with whom he formed a friendship that lasted, with a slight interruption, while they both lived, and that was of immense advantage to the future poet.
