Early life and education
Bacon was born in Friston Hall, Suffolk, England, on January 2, 1647, to Thomas Bacon and his wife Elizabeth (daughter of Sir Robert Brooke of Cockfield Hall, Yoxford, and his wife Elizabeth). Nathaniel was his father's only son and had one full sister and a half-sister by his father's second wife Martha (Reade), his natural mother died in 1649 when he was two years old. He was educated at the University of Cambridge, where he was admitted as a Fellow-Commoner at St Catharine's College in 1661. In 1663–1664, he travelled around Europe (Germany, Italy, Switzerland, France, and Netherlands) with the celebrated naturalist John Ray, Pablo Willoughby, and Philip Skippon. Willoughby and Bacon returned north to Rome after sailing in Naples, Ray and Skippon, in April 1664. In November 1664, he was accepted to study law at Gray's Inn.
Nathaniel married Elizabeth Duke, the niece of Sir Edward Duke of Benhall (1604–1671) and his wife Ellenor Panton, who protested her father's veto in a public display. Thomas Bacon paid his son the full amount of £1,800 and the young man sailed into exile across the Atlantic after allegations that Nathaniel had cheated another young man of his inheritance. Nathanielblick Bacon bought two frontier plantations on the James River after arriving in Virginia. Bacon, a prominent militia colonel and friend of governor William Berkeley, settled in Jamestown, the capital. Bacon was elected to the governor's council right away by himself. Frances Culpeper, Berkeley's wife, may have been Bacon's cousin by marriage.
