Born in East Lansing, Michigan, to Carl Victor Page, Sr., a computer science professor, and Gloria, an instructor in computer programming, Page played saxophone as a child. Growing up, he has also studied music composition, which inspired his impatience and obsession with speed in computing. At the age of six, he started to show interest in computers, as he could play with first-generation personal computers, left by his parents lying around.
Page was first attracted to computers when he was six years old, as he was able to "play with the stuff lying around"—first-generation personal computers—that had been left by his mother and father. He became the "first kid in his elementary school to turn in an assignment from a word processor".His older brother also taught him to take things apart and before long he was taking "everything in his house apart to see how it worked". He said that "from a very early age, I also realized I wanted to invent things. So I became really interested in technology and business. Probably from when I was 12, I knew I was going to start a company eventually.

2. Personal life
He focused on the problem of finding out which web pages link to a given page, considering the number and nature of such backlinks as valuable information for that page. Then, Sergey Brin soon joined his research project, called BackRub. The two wrote the research “The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine”.It became one of the most downloaded scientific documents in the history of the internet at the time. During the period Page made the BackRub, the Web comprised an estimated 10 million documents, with a known number of links between them. The devices required to comprise such a high amount of data were beyond the usual bounds of a student project.
But he began building out his crawler, which lured Brin to the job. Just the simple task to turn the backlink date put together by BackRub’s web crawler into a measure of importance for a certain web page, became almost impossible without developing the PageRank algorithm.
In 2007, Page married Lucinda Southworth on Necker Island, the Caribbean island owned by Richard Branson. Southworth is a research scientist and the sister of actress and model Carrie Southworth. Page and Southworth have two children, born in 2009 and 2011.
On February 18, 2005, Page bought a 9,000 square feet (840 m2) Spanish Colonial Revival architecture house in Palo Alto, California designed by American artistic polymath Pedro Joseph de Lemos, a former curator of the Stanford Art Museum and founder of the Carmel Art Institute, after the historic building had been on the market for years with an asking price of US$7.95 million. A two-story stucco archway spans the driveway and the home features intricate stucco work, as well as stone and tile in California Arts and Crafts movement style built to resemble de Lemos's family's castle in Spain. The hacienda was constructed between 1931 and 1941 by de Lemos. It is also on the National Register of Historic Places.
