Early life[ edit ] Audubon was born in Les Cayes in the French colony of Saint-Domingue now Haiti  on his father's sugarcane plantation.
He was the son of Lieutenant Jean Audubon, a French naval officer and privateer from the south of Brittany and his mistress Jeanne Rabine,  a year-old chambermaid from Les TouchesBrittany now in the modern region Pays de la Loire. His father already had an unknown number of mixed-race children among them a daughter named Marie-Madeleine some by his mulatto housekeeper, Catherine "Sanitte" Bouffard  described as a quadroonmeaning she was three-quarters European in ancestry.
Bouffard also took care of the infant boy Jean. During the American Revolutionhe had been imprisoned by Britain. After his release, he helped the American cause. Due to slave unrest in the Caribbean, in he sold part of his plantation in Saint-Domingue and purchased a acre farm called Mill Grove20 miles from Philadelphiato diversify his investments.
Increasing tension in Saint-Domingue between the colonists and the African slaves, who greatly outnumbered them, convinced Jean Audubon to return to France, where he became a member of the Republican Guard.
In he arranged for his natural children, Jean and Muguet, who were majority-white in ancestry, to be transported and delivered to him in France. In they formally adopted both his natural children to regularize their legal status in France.
He would point out the elegant movement of the birds, and the beauty and softness of their plumage. He called my attention to their show of pleasure or sense of danger, their perfect forms and splendid attire.
He would speak of their departure and return with the seasons. He played flute and violin, and learned to ride, fenceand dance.
At twelve, Audubon went to military school and became a cabin boy. He quickly found out that he was susceptible to seasickness and not fond of mathematics or navigation.
After failing the officer's qualification test, Audubon ended his incipient naval career. He was cheerfully back on solid ground and exploring the fields again, focusing on birds. Jean Audubon and Claude Rozier arranged a business partnership for their sons to pursue in Pennsylvania. It was based on Claude Rozier's buying half of Jean Audubon's share of a plantation in Haiti, and lending money to the partnership as secured by half interest in lead mining at Audubon's property of Mill Grove.
The ship's captain placed him in a boarding house run by Quaker women. They nursed Audubon to recovery and taught him English, including the Quaker form of using "thee" and "thou", otherwise then archaic.
He traveled with the family's Quaker lawyer to the Audubon family farm Mill Grove. Audubon lived with the tenants in the two-story stone house, in an area that he considered a paradise. This could provide his son with a profitable occupation.
He was married to Lucy five years later. The two young people shared many common interests, and early on began to spend time together, exploring the natural world around them. Audubon set about to study American birds, determined to illustrate his findings in a more realistic manner than most artists did then.
After an accidental fall into a creek, Audubon contracted a severe fever. He was nursed and recovered at Fatland Ford, with Lucy at his side.
Risking conscription in France, Audubon returned in to see his father and ask permission to marry.
He also needed to discuss family business plans.Fantasy artist John Howe is best known for his illustrations of J. R. R. Tolkien’s works, creating illustrations for editions of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit and related calendars in the early 90’s.
