Christopher Wren 's father was also called Christopher Wren. Christopher Wren senior was a well educated man, having graduated from St John's College Oxford before entering the Church. He became rector of Fonthill, Wiltshire in 1620 and then East Knoyle, Wiltshire in 1623. He married Mary Cox, the only child of the Wiltshire squire Robert Cox from Fonthill, and it was while they were living at East Knoyle that all their children were born. Mary, Catherine, and Susan were all born by 1628 but then several children were born who died within a few weeks of their birth. Their son Christopher was born in 1632 then, two years later, another daughter named Elizabeth was born. Mary must have died shortly after the birth of Elizabeth, although there does not appear to be any surviving record of the date. Through Mary, however, the family became well off financially for, as the only heir, she had inherited her father's estate. In 1634 Christopher Wren senior was offered the position of Dean of Windsor, a post held by his brother Mathew Wren who was becoming Bishop of Hereford. Christopher Wren senior was installed as Dean on 4 April 1635 and there the young Christopher was brought up by his father and by an older sister who slotted into the role of a mother to him. He grew up with the close friendship of another relation, for his uncle Mathew Wren had a son, also called Mathew Wren, who became part of Christopher's close family. Another childhood friend was the son of Charles I, the Prince of Wales, and they often played together.

Sir Christopher Wren (b. Wiltshire, England 1632; d. London, England 1723) Christopher Wren was born in Wiltshire, England in 1632. He attended Wadham College, Oxford in 1649 as a Gentleman Commoner. At Oxford he joined a group of brilliant scholars, who later formed the core of the Royal Society. As assistant to an eminent anatomist, Wren developed skills as an experimental, scientific thinker. With astronomy as his initial course of study, Wren developed skills in working models, diagrams and charting that proved useful when he entered architecture. Wren became the Gresham Professor of Astronomy in London in 1657, at the age of twenty-five. Four years later he became the Savilian Professor of Astronomy at Oxford. In 1663, Wren's uncle, the Bishop of Ely, asked him to design a new chapel for Pembroke College, Cambridge. This, his first foray into architecture, was quickly followed by more commissions.

Christopher Wren, the son of the Dean of Windsor, and nephew of Dr. Mathew Wren, the Bishop of Norwich , was born in 1632. As his father was the king's chaplain, Christopher spent his early life in Windsor Castle. As a child he played with the king's son who later became Charles II
Christopher was an intelligent boy and did very well at school. He was particularly interested in mathematics and science, and by the age of seventeen had made several inventions. These included an instrument that wrote in the dark, a weather clock, a pneumatic engine and a new deaf and dumb language.
At Oxford University Wren developed a reputation as a brilliant scientist. He carried out a series of experiments that was to prove very important for health care. For example, he showed how it was possible to send people into a deep sleep by injecting them with opium. This helped doctors who wanted to carry out long operations. Wren himself used this system to remove a spleen from a dog. He also successfully used a syringe to transfer blood from one dog to another.
In 1657 Wren was appointed as professor of astronomy at Gresham College in London. Wren became interested in the laws of motion. He carried out several experiments on this subject, and when

Sir Christopher Wren
The English "Wrenaissance"
Sir Christopher Wren, along with his associates, represented the dominant force in late seventeenth and early eighteenth-century architecture. By far his greatest work, St. Paul's Cathredral in London, was begun in 1675 and completed in 1711. For the next two centuries, and until the advent of the modern skyscraper, St. Paul's dominated the London skyline as a symbol of the stability of the Church of England and English government and society. Perhaps the single greatest opportunity for Wren's career was also one of the great catastrophes for the city of London: the Great Fire of 1666. This fire destroyed most of old London, including old St. Paul's and many churches. Wren came along at the perfect time to benefit from this tragedy. There are now dozens of Wren churches in London, and many more by his two associates Nicholas Hawksmoor and Sir John Vanbrugh . Besides St. Paul's Wren's second greatest achievement is Greenwich Hospital (also worked on by Hawksmoor and Vanbrugh), begun in 1696. The Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford is by Wren, and his direct influence even reached America in the Wren Building of William and Mary College in Virginia. One of the most interesting alterations in building style to occur in England in the late seventeenth century was Wren's remodeling of Henry VIII's Tudor Hampton Court Palace . The difference between the Tudor entrance and the Wren-ovated garden front is remarkable. St. Paul's Cathedral (1675-1710)
