Author : Daniel Defoe
I WAS born in the year 1632, in the city of York, of a good family, though
not of that country, my father being a foreigner of Bremen, who settled first
at Hull. He got a good estate by merchandise, and leaving off his trade, lived
afterwards at York, from whence he had married my mother, whose relations were
named Robinson, a very good family in that country, and from whom I was called
Robinson Kreutznaer; but, by the usual corruption of words in England, we are
now called - nay we call ourselves and write our name - Crusoe; and so my
companions always called me.
