Charles Dodgson (1832-1898), better known by his pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English writer, mathematician and Anglican Deacon. His family home for 25 years was in Croft –upon-Tees, Richmondshire in North Yorkshire. His father was Rector of Croft and Archdeacon of Richmond, and a canon of Ripon Cathedral.
Dodgson made many documented visits to Whitby (recorded in his diaries), including a two month revision school in 1854 set up to prepare Dodgson and others for their finals at Oxford. Dodgson also had his first literary works published in the Whitby Gazette. In 1871, Dodgson attended the marriage of his brother, Wilfred , to Alice Donkin in Sleights.
