Background (family, education, important life events)
David was born on June 9, 1880 and grew up in a respectful, middle class household in London, England with his mother, father, sister Donna (Donna Tennant Noble), and uncle. David would build his own toys from spare parts he found and even made a mechanically automobile at the age of 9. After, the death of his mother in 1890 and the disappearance of his father in 1894, his Uncle Christopher stepped in to take care of him and his sister. In 1896, they left for the United States after David's old brother was killed in a riot. David's uncle knew people in Rochester, New York where they arrived and prospered for several years. David and his sister Donna were able to get an education in engineering and nursing (respectively) and began careers in 1902.

In 1903, David met Elizabeth Price. They married in 1905 and went on to have 2 sons. Soon after the wedding, David's uncle died at the age 65 leaving David and Donna to rely on the lives they had made for themselves. David started work in a tinkering shop in 1910 and has done work for private contractors.



Current Biography (ca. 1921):
David Tennant presently is operating a tinkering shop that he has owned and operated for the last 11 years. He has built engines for car, boats, even airplanes, and some motorized bicycles. He previously looked for any kind of work whether it is repairing or building. With the reputation as a very reliable engineer, however, he has become more selective of his customers. While it may seem random, the more he is paid, the more likely he will accept it. He is a capitalist through and true, money is what drives him and the work is something he enjoys.

He has a wife and 2 children, Matthew and Samuel, living in Rochester, New York.

Upon release, David made a contract with the Rochester Police Department to arm them with his customary sleeve guns which aided his new reputation.

Some his inventions were noticed by military personal and his skill was quickly recognized and recruited. He advanced the way warfare was fought with innovative weaponry and in 1943, he was brought in on a top secret government plan called the Manhattan Project. He aided heavily in the project's completion finishing the first atomic bomb in 1944.

After the Second World War, David also helped innovate a standard kitchen unit that was comprised of a multi-stove top on a brand new conventional oven with the help of his older son, Matthew, in 1951. His younger son, Samuel, went on to become a business man in New York City, with occasion trips back to Rochester.

David’s wife, Elizabeth, continued her career as a nurse and retired in 1965 at the age of 83. David wanted to work for as long as he could and continue to make the world a better place. He finally retired in June of 1970 at the age of 90, but continued to over watch the operations of his legacy in the Tennant Factory.
