Early years and education:She was born on March 29, 1831 (1832 is also reported), in Ulverston, Lancashire, England as Amelia Edith Huddleston. Her father was Reverend William Huddleston, a Wesleyan minister.She was brought up in an atmosphere of culture and refinement, and early turned to books for recreation and instruction. When only nine years of age she became her father's companion and reader. Thus it was she read books far beyond her comprehension, but they tended to develop her mental qualities.

Its principles are based on morality and lifelong learning, rather than learning by rote..............
