Did you know that Charles Dickens was a big walker. He could easily rack up 20 miles, often at night. You can almost smell London’s atmosphere in his prose.

On 25 March 1837, Dickens moved with his family into 48 Doughty Street where he would remain until December 1839. A new addition to the household was Dickens’s younger brother Frederick. Also, Catherine’s 17 year old sister Mary moved with them from Furnival’s Inn to offer support to her newly married sister and brother-in-law. It was not unusual for a woman’s unwed sister to live with and help a newly married couple. Dickens became very attached to Mary, and she died in his arms after a brief illness in 1837. She became a character in many of his books, and her death is fictionalized as the death of Little Nell.
