The prosperity of the family of Charles Dickens came to an abrupt end, when his father spent beyond his means in entertaining and in retaining his social position, and was finally imprisoned at Marshalsea debtor’s prison. Shortly afterwards, the rest of his family joined him in residence at Marshalsea (except for Charles, who boarded in Camden Town at the house of family friend Elizabeth Roylance).

The prison of Marshalsea provided the setting of one of Charles Dickens works, Little Dorrit, and is where the title character’s father is imprisoned.
