Christopher Huffam and my next Charles Dickens Talk

Researching for more information about Christopher Huffam (Charles Dickens uncle who lived at Limehouse) I came across this interesting website, which is well worth a visit. I will be talking much more about this at my next Talk at St Katharine Docks.


'In the Footsteps of Charles Dickens in Shadwell & Limehouse
In Narrow St, Limehouse
Charles Dickens’ godfather Christopher Huffam lived and ran his sailmaking, blockmaking and chandlery business from a substantial house in Newell St, next to St Anne’s Limehouse. Huffam adored his godson, declaring the boy a prodigy, tipping him half a crown on his birthday and encouraging him to dance and perform comic songs upon the kitchen table – and also, it is said, upon the bar at The Grapes'.
