NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE

ANSWER


Hawthorne was born in 1804 on July 4th in Salem, Massachusetts in America.

His parents were Nathaniel Hathorne who was a US navy captain and his mother was Elizabeth Clarke Manning. Nathaniel’s father died when he was four years old leaving him under the care of his mother and sisters.  His great ancestors were among the first puritans to emigrate from England and settled down in the area around New England (The Literature Network, 2007). His great grandfather who had helped in officiating the witch trials in Salem, made Nathaniel very guilty and this provided a theme for most of the stories that he wrote.
