Newton was born at Woolsthorpe Manor in Woolsthorpe-by-Colsterworth, a hamlet in the county of Lincolnshire. Newton was born prematurely, and no one expected him to live; indeed, his mother, Hannah Ayscough, is reported to have said that his body at that time could have fit inside a quart mug.
More information about Newton, his life and work is available from Wikipedia , and from the award-winning MacTutor History of Mathematics Archive .
