Who was Thoby Stephen?
Thoby Stephen was the eldest son of Leslie Stephen and Julia Prinsep. As the result of his mother's first marriage, he was also a half-brother of George and Gerald Duckworth. He was educated at Clifton College, after failing to gain a place at Eton. However, this did not hold him back, since he won an exhibition to Trinity College, Cambridge from Clifton. He was a friend of Lytton Strachey, who was enchanted by his masculinity and introduced him to the "Reading Club". He was described as "over six feet tall and of somewhat ponderous build."
