A true iconoclast (iconoclasm), he did this against his parents' wishes. He had not completed his education, nor acquired any real-world skill and rejected the chance to run the ''Stokes and Parish Machine Company'' set up by his father. As a deeply religious Quaker, he became sort of a Christian sannyasi until meeting the Archbishop of Canterbury and forming an order of Franciscan Friars and dedicated his early years living in poverty and aiding the diseased and dying.
