William Penn was a good and hard-working child. He grew up with his sister Marget and brother Richard. He was very focused and successful. His father was very proud when young William was applied to Oxford University.
This is Oxford University, where William went to college.
Penn’s family was very excited when they heard that he would be attending one of the best colleges in the country. By the time he arrived it was already an old , old school. One night while William was studying he met a man named Thomas Loe
Loe said all men are equal and that sounded accurate to him. he also
believed that no one should take off their hat or bow to anyone
because no one is better than the others. These people are called
Quakers and Thomas believed very strongly in them.
William’s father was upset with him for worshipping
somewhere else than the church of England.
In result his father sent him off to France.
William wore the fine clothes he had purchased in France
when he came back to London. After he arrived his father
Went off to war. Next, a horrific disease swept over the entire
City. This plague killed over a hundred people because they weren’t enough doctors and nurses to care for them. He remembered that all men are created equally so he decided to hold a nursing home in their house.
William was finally freed from prison. After his father died king Charles the 3rd he owed them a large amount of money. But, the King could not pay debt. Instead, he gave William some land in America. Some of the Quakers followed! He then found out the Indians. He respected their land and didn’t drag them out. They gave him nice meaningful gifts. He was surprised when he saw the beautiful home the Quakers have built him. Later, he returned to England and died
As you can see, William Penn was a very determined, hard working, selfless person
But his sons were different….
