The Early Years

Born 20th November 1960 in Folkestone, Kent. Educated at Kent College, Canterbury and then at Trinity College, Cambridge.

The Even Earlier Years

Read about Hogben family history going back to 4 BC (honestly!). (OK, so it's only back to 1020 AD in an unbroken line.)

Also I have a list of email addresses and homepages of other Hogbens on the Net.
