Pencil, white chalk and watercolour portrait of Georgiana Babbage (1793-1827). Charles Babbage (1792-1871) was a computer pioneer, inventor, reformer, mathematician and political economist. His 'Analytical Engine' of 1834 was the first calculating engine designed along modern lines, and it is for this that he is widely considered the 'father' of computing. Georgiana gave birth to eight children in 13 years, only three of which survived into maturity.
