Бенџамин Френклин е роден на улицата Милк стрит, во Бостон,Масачусет, на Јануари 17, 1706,[1][Забелешка 1] и крштеван во "Old South Meeting House". Тој бил едно од седумнаесетте деца на Џозија Френклин, еден од десетте деца на Џозија и неговата втора сопруга, Абиа Фолгер. Помегу браката и сестрите на Бенџамин, најстариот брат е Џејмс а најмлада е сестрата Џејн.
Josiah wanted Ben to attend school with the clergy, but only had enough money to send him to school for two years. He attended Boston Latin School but did not graduate; he continued his education through voracious reading. Although "his parents talked of the church as a career"[8] for Franklin, his schooling ended when he was ten. He worked for his father for a time, and at 12 he became an apprentice to his brother James, a printer, who taught Ben the printing trade. When Ben was 15, James founded The New-England Courant, which was the first truly independent newspaper in the colonies.
When denied the chance to write a letter to the paper for publication, Franklin adopted the pseudonym of "Mrs. Silence Dogood", a middle-aged widow. Mrs. Dogood's letters were published, and became a subject of conversation around town. Neither James nor the Courant's readers were aware of the ruse, and James was unhappy with Ben when he discovered the popular correspondent was his younger brother. Franklin was an advocate of free speech from an early age. When his brother was jailed for three weeks in 1722 for publishing material unflattering to the governor, young Franklin took over the newspaper and had Mrs. Dogood (quoting Cato's Letters) proclaim: "Without freedom of thought there can be no such thing as wisdom and no such thing as public liberty without freedom of speech."[9] Franklin left his apprenticeship without his brother's permission, and in so doing became a fugitive.[10]
