Charles Dickens Lecturer. He was the sixth child and fourth son of noted Victorian author Charles Dickens and wife Catherine. He was born at 1 Devonshire Terrace, on the South side of Regent's Park, and was named after his godfathers, Lord Tennyson and Count D'Orsay. Along with his brothers Frank and Sydney, he was educated at a private school in Boulogne. He contemplated a career in the Army, in medicine, or in business. Instead, when he was twenty, he emigrated to Australia. In 1875, he married Jessie Devlin, 'The Belle of Melbourne", with whom he had two daughters, Violet and Katherine Mary. Unfortunately, in 1879, Jessie died in a carriage accident. Alfred remained in Australia until 1905, after which he gave lectures in Europe and America on his father's life and work. It was on such a tour that he died, in New York City. Presumably, he is buried there, although this has yet to be ascertained. His name appears, along with those of his nine siblings, on the monument next to his mother's grave in Highgate Cemetery, North London. (bio by: Iain MacFarlaine)
