Isaac Newton was born on Christmas day 1642 in Woolthorpe, Lincolnshire, England. He was born on a cold winter night as a premature baby with people doubting that he would survive. He gained enough strength and survived. He struggled his first couple years especially with the death of his father two months before he was born. Newton went to Trinity College at Cambridge University with a dream of becoming a Church of England minister.<ref>Lamont, Ann.(1990,June).Sir Isaac Newton (1642/3–1727): A Scientific Genius.
