Edmund Clerihew Bentley was born in Shepherd's Bush, London.
In 1887 he entered St. Paul's School where he struck up the most important
and enduring aquaintanceship of his life, with G.K.
Chesterton. They were members of the school's Junior Debating Club,
and contributed essays and poems to the Debater, the club's journal.
Bentley invented a new sort of limerick, the 'clerihew'.
