FC: In The life of Beatrix Potter | By: Katherine Harris and Betzy Huerta
1: On July 28, 1866 in Kensington Square, London, England Helen Beatrix Potter came into the world.
2: Her parents were Rupert Potter and Helen Leech and they both had become wealthy due to the cotton trade, so life in the Potter household was easy and quite comfortable.
3: Beatrix Potter was the only daughter of her parents and so grew up lonely, enlivened by long trips to the English Lake District or Scotland, which helped to instill a love for all animals.
4: On one such holiday in Scotland, at the age of 27, she sent a picture book to a sick boy, about four small bunny rabbits named Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail, and Peter.
5: This amazing occurrence led to the start of the Peter Rabbit books with the help of her publisher, Norman Warne, who later became her intended until his early death.
6: The Hunt Is On | After the sudden death of her betrothed, Norman Warne, she remained single until the age of 47, when she married William Heelis, a Lake District lawyer.
7: During her life, Miss Potter bought and managed land for the National Trust with the money she made from The Peter Rabbit books.
8: As a farmer herself, she tried to ensure that the traditional farming methods and the old way of doing things were not forgotten.
9: Helen Beatrix Potter died at the age of 77 on December 22, 1943; William died two years later.
