Sir Isaac Newton was born in Lincolnshire in 1642. He came from a family of yeoman farmers, but chose to follow an academic career rather than taking charge of the family estate. He became a mathematician and natural philosopher, publishing Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica in 1687. He became President of the Royal Society in 1703. He remains one of the foremost scientists of all time.
