More About Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Arthur Conan Doyle Arthur Conan Doyle was born the third of ten siblings on 22 May 1859 in Edinburgh, Scotland. His father, Charles Altamont Doyle, was born in England of Irish descent, and his mother, born Mary Foley, was Irish. They were married in 1855.

Although he is now referred to as "Conan Doyle", the origin of this compound surname (if that is how he meant it to be understood) is uncertain. His baptism record in the registry of St Mary's Cathedral in Edinburgh gives 'Arthur Ignatius Conan' as his Christian name, and simply 'Doyle' as his surname. It also names Michael Conan as his godfather.

At the age of nine Conan Doyle was sent to the Roman Catholic Jesuit preparatory school, Hodder Place, Stonyhurst. He then went on to Stonyhurst College, leaving in 1875.

From 1876 to 1881 he studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh. This required that he provide periodic medical assistance in the towns of Aston (now a district of Birmingham) and Sheffield. While studying, Conan Doyle began writing short stories. His first published story appeared in "Chambers's Edinburgh Journal" before he was 20. Following his graduation, he was employed as a ship's doctor on the SS Mayumba during a voyage to the West African coast. He completed his doctorate on the subject of tabes dorsalis in 1885.

In 1885 Conan Doyle married Louisa (or Louise) Hawkins, known as "Touie". She suffered from tuberculosis and died on 4 July 1906. The following year he married Jean Elizabeth Leckie, whom he had first met and fallen in love with in 1897. Due to his sense of loyalty he had maintained a purely platonic relationship with Jean while his first wife was alive. Jean died in London on 27 June 1940.

Conan Doyle fathered five children. Two with his first wife—Mary Louise (28 January 1889 – 12 June 1976), and Arthur Alleyne Kingsley, known as Kingsley (15 November 1892 – 28 October 1918). With his second wife he had three children—Denis Percy Stewart (17 March 1909 – 9 March 1955), second husband in 1936 of Georgian Princess Nina Mdivani (circa 1910 – 19 February 1987; former sister-in-law of Barbara Hutton); Adrian Malcolm (19 November 1910–3 June 1970) and Jean Lena Annette (21 December 1912–18 November 1997).

Conan Doyle was found clutching his chest in the hall of Windlesham, his house in Crowborough, East Sussex, on 7 July 1930. He had died of a heart attack at age 71. His last words were directed toward his wife: "You are wonderful." The epitaph on his gravestone in the churchyard at Minstead in the New Forest, Hampshire, reads:


Conan Doyle's house, Undershaw, located in Hindhead, south of London, where he had lived for a decade, had been a hotel and restaurant between 1924 and 2004. It now stands empty while conservationists and Conan Doyle fans fight to preserve it.

A statue honours Conan Doyle at Crowborough Cross in Crowborough, where Conan Doyle lived for 23 years. There is also a statue of Sherlock Holmes in Picardy Place, Edinburgh, close to the house where Conan Doyle was born.

Arthur Conan Doyle lived in Edinburgh. Arthur Conan Doyle was born in 1859 and died in 1930.

T.H.O.B.  May 5, 2010

what is big, bad, and from the pit of Hell?, upon the moor be it dwell, I bode to Sir Henry fare the well, and suggest that the mansion he should sell. Do you love a good mystery once in a while, which will leave you guessing right until the end? If so, The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was made for you. Written in 1910, for a century this book has been the rave for thrill and mystery seekers all over the world.

The Hound of the Baskervilles is a novel dealing with a centuries old legend of a "Hell-Hound" lurking in the town of Devonshire located in southern England. When Dr. Watson and his accomplice Sherlock Holmes get wind of a murder taken place they are instantaneously intrigued and immediately devote their time into the inves-tigation. Sir Charles Baskerville died from unexplained causes with no trace but a sin-gle foot prints from "a hound as big as a large lioness". From the outset, Dr. Watson is hot on the trail of the hound and planning to send the legend home with its tail be-tween its legs. But then as in all good stories there is a plot twist where all of yours and their assumptions are proven wrong.

I would recommend this book to anyone with a strong reading capability and a love for a mystery because I thoroughly enjoyed it and I would bet my bottom dollar that you will too. So if I can give any advice it would be for you to read this and you will like it.

If anyone asked me I would above all else recommend this book with a slight warning. You need to be a strong reader to tackle this book for it is not written in a modern context for after all it is a flat century old. This book however is a must read. There are parts about this book that you are so enthralled and mortified while your heart is beating a triathlon and your instincts say to put the book down but you just can't muster the strength. At one point in the book where a stranger meets an un-fortunate demise it is especially exuberating.

Lasts a Lifetime  May 1, 2010
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES is one of the best. It has lasted over a century, having been published in 1901. If you haven't read it, do so today--there haven't been many changes in detective fiction in the last hundred years.
Nash Black, author of SINS OF THE FATHERS.
The Hound of the Baskervilles  Feb 22, 2010
Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous book mixes the supernatural with a regular detective story. A book that will keep readers on their toes- That's for sure.
The reader  Feb 22, 2010
The reader is left to decide whether a very clever person planned Sir Charles' murder, or perhaps the Hound of the Baskervilles is to blame, or possibly there is a combination of a badly intentioned person trying to get hold of the estate, while at the same time the evil black hound really exists. (From Source: (...)
Gothic symbols  Feb 22, 2010
The Hound of the Baskervilles has all of the elements of a Gothic tale. The Hall, where Sir Henry is now traveling with Watson and Dr. Mortimer, is surrounded by the gloomy moors, and wild countryside with "brambles", and rushing streams. (From Source: [...])
