Dickens had three daughters: Kate Macready Dickens ("Katey"), 1839-1929; Mary ("Mamie") Dickens, 1838-1896; and the ill-fated Dora Annie Dickens, 1850-1851, who died a fragile infant of just eight months of age on 14 April 1851, named after the heroine of David Copperfield, running in monthly serialisation at her birth. The two girls with very similar faces (and showing a strong resemblance to Dickens himself) are the first two in the list. [continued below].
