A Kipling Chronology

  • Harold Orel
Part of the Macmillan Author Chronologies book series (ACH)


30 December RK is born in Bombay, six days after his mother’s painful confinement begins. He is named Joseph (after his grandfather) and Rudyard (after the lake in Staffordshire, near Burslem, at which his parents had met during the spring of 1863). He is baptised in Bombay Cathedral; John Griffiths, assistant to his father, and his Aunt Louisa (by proxy), serve as sponsors.
