Return to top of page. The Crowleys, devout members of the Plymouth Brethrencame from Alton. His body bore the three most important distinguishing marks of a Buddha.
Firstly, he was born tongue-tied, resulting in a surgeon cutting the fraenum linguae on the second day of this incarnation. Secondly, he had the characteristic membrane which necessitated an operation for phimosis some 15 years later, and finally, upon the centre of his heart four hairs curled from left to right in the exact form of a Swastika.
By the age of four, young Edward could read extremely well, but the only book he was officially permitted to read was the Holy Bible.
From all accounts, although very well versed in the narrative, he had no real interest in the text with the exception of that found in Revelation in the New Testament.
Although he was brought up as an only child, his parents did conceive and bear another, a girl given the name Grace Mary Elizabeth, on 29 February Sadly, at least for his parents, she lived for just five hours. After all, he could do nothing; the child was dead, lifeless. He had no affection for it and considered the matter to be of no importance.
His feeling towards his parents, however, is one of the stranger facets of his early life, which would lead to his later contempt for Christianity. His father was undoubtedly his hero, friend and mentor.
Edward junior remembered walking with his father in a field, when his attention was drawn to a clump of nettles. He was warned they would sting if he were to touch them.
He did not remember what he answered, but whatever it was drew the question from his father, "Will you take my word for it or would you rather learn by experience?
Despite having the greatest respect for his father, he supposedly despised his mother and treated her as one might have a servant in those austere Victorian times. For the young lad, it was not only a physical repulsion he felt, but an intellectual and social scorn, notwithstanding the fact that she was considered a very talented painter in watercolour.
Nevertheless, regardless of his supposed loathing of her, he maintained contact with his mother throughout her life, albeit infrequently, and was even gracious enough to save her life at Beachy Head, near Eastbourne, East Sussex. The reason for the move is not entirely clear, something to do with the soil, but may have been as a consequence of the death of Grace.
His memories of this period were mainly of uninterrupted bliss. It was shortly after the move to Redhill that a tailor named Hemming came down from London to make new clothes for his father. Being one of the Brethren, he stayed as a guest in the house.
During his visit, he offered to teach the boy the rudiments of the game of chess and clearly succeeded far too well, for he lost every game after the first.
It was around this time that young Edward became known as Alick, particularly by his mother, much to his annoyance. He hated the bullying and beatings and wished the old man dead. It seemed an ideal place for the boy to be educated. While living in Redhill his father became gravely ill, rather ironically for such an eloquent and passionate preacher, with cancer of the tongue.
Despite the best treatment money could buy, he died on 5 March ; Alick had dreamt of his death at school two nights before it occurred.
During holidays, they stayed with her brother or in hotels and hydros. She had grave concerns about bringing up Alick in London, but when Uncle Tom moved to Streatham she compromised by taking a house in Polworth Road, Lambeth.
This move occurred one year before the first brutal murder by Jack the Ripper which took place on Friday 31 August in the Whitechapel area of London. His knowledge of the Ripper is a very strange tale filled with twisted logic and speculation and does nothing other than throw further perplexity on an already complicated subject.
Alick became a terribly unhappy child at the prep school in Bateman Street and developed a serious illness due to the constant bullying, deprivation and punishments he had to endure in those strict Victorian days, particularly under the authority of the Brethren.
He was diagnosed with albuminuria and for a while it really was touch and go as to whether the boy would pull through. It was probably from experiencing hardships such as these at a tender age that he acquired a strong survival instinct which would stand him in good stead in later years, particularly on his intrepid mountaineering expeditions and arduous exploration of barren lands and deserts."Flora,, Goddess of Spring, Flowers, and youthful pleasures The Queen of Spring is a beautiful and serene Goddess.
