About Author


William Tuckwell (1829-1919), also known as the "radical parson," was an English Anglican clergyman noted on political platforms for his experiments with allotments, support for land nationalization, and excitement for Christian socialism. He was a proponent of science education in schools. Tuckwell was born on November 27th, 1829. He was the eldest son of Margaret (née Wood) and William Tuckwell (1784-1845), a surgeon at Oxford's Radcliffe Infirmary. Tuckwell attended a prep school in Hammersmith before enrolling in Winchester College in 1842 and New College, Oxford, in 1848. He was the headmaster of New College School from 1857 to 1864. In 1864, he was appointed headmaster of Taunton Grammar School, afterwards known as Taunton College School, by the Warden of New College, Oxford. His "energy and vitality" were said to have enhanced the size and quality of the school. Rosa Strong (b. 1829/30), the eldest daughter of Captain Henry Strong, an Indian army commander, married him in 1858. Emilia Dilke, her younger sister, was a feminist and labor unionist.
