Charlotte Champe Stearns Eliot (1843–1929), the poet’s mother, was born on 22 October in Baltimore, Maryland, the second child and second daughter of Thomas Stearns (1811–96) and Charlotte Blood Stearns (1818–93). She went first to private schools in Boston and Sandwich, followed by three years at the State Normal School, Framingham, Massachusetts, from which she graduated in 1862.

Finally, in 'Four Quartets' he forges an original form and a compelling tone to hymn both religious belief and national destiny
