John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born to a Mabel Suffield and Arthur Reuel Tolkien. Arthur Tolkien was a bank manager for the Bank of Africa, who moved to South Africa when he left his job at Lloyds Bank in Birmingham, England. On January 3, 1892 J.R.R. Tolkien was born in Bloemfontein, South Africa. On February 15, 1896 Arthur Tolkien died and the Tolkien family moved back to England. On October 15, 1904 Mabel was diagnosed with diabetes, which was the cause of death for her since it was incurable at that time. After that, John Ronald visited King Edward VI Grammar School in Birmingham. During that time his interests in linguistics became more pronounced. .
Together with some King Edward's friends, he formed the "T. C. B. S." (Tea Club, Barrovian Society). As he attended King Edward VI Grammar School, John and his brother, Hilary, were fostered by their unsympathetic aunt-by-marriage, Beatrice Suffield, and then with a Mrs. Faulkner. In 1908 John met his future wife Edith Bratt, a 19 year-old woman at that time. Father Francis Morgan, the roman catholic priest who visited the family often, forbade John to have any relationship until he was 21 years-old and was able to take care of himself.
