Benjamin was able to escape the curse of slavery because his parents were both free. Benjamin was first taught reading by his maternal grandmother. He then attended a Quaker school for a brief time.

Banneker attended Quaker schools occasionally, but he was mostly self-educated. Learning through the voracious reading of borrowed books. He’s showing a special aptitude for maths early on. As a young man, he’s building a clock made of wood that accurately kept time. George Ellicott (a Quaker, amateur astronomer and Quaker) encouraged Banneker in his study of astronomy. Ellicott belonged to a family that owned several nearby mills. Banneker started making astronomical calculations as early as 1788. He accurately predicted the solar eclipse of 1789. Banneker did other astronomical observations in 1791 while assisting Andrew Ellicott with surveying land to become Washington, D.C. [3]

He recalled the mechanisms of his pocket watches and it is believed that this was what he used to create it. He viewed it as a puzzle and compared the many toothed gears to a maths equation. Then he used a pocket knife to carefully carve each one from seasoned hardwood. He used either a portion of the bell to make it ring. Glass bottle Metal container.

Benjamin Banneker was a free black farmer, mathematician and astronomer. He was the son of Robert and Mary Bannaky who were freed from slavery. His father had a small farm near the Patapsco River, southeast of Baltimore. For some years, Benjamin seems to have served as an indentured laborer on the Prince George’s County plantation of Mary Welsh, who had dealings with the Bannaky family and in 1773 executed her dead husband’s instructions to release several of her labour force including “Negro Ben, born free age 43.” Walsh was surely not Banneker’s grandmother, as argued by many biographers, but she’s doingoing leave him a substantial legacy.
