Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next queen.
Then Cath meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the king and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense, secret courtship. Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.
The well was located in the graveyard of St. Margaret's Church, which was where the first miracle was performed by Oxford's patron saint, Frideswide. The well was said to have curative powers, and during the Medieval period "treacle" meant "medicine" or "healing liquid.
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
As an alum and faculty member at Oxford, Dodgson would have been familiar with this legend, and of Prickett's likely connection to the area. Dodgson also includes more subtle details alluding to Prickett. For instance, the Red Queen is "the thorny kind," an allusion to the Liddell' girls' nickname for Pricket, "Pricks. Margaret's well. Prickett did not, in fact, come from Binsey. Her father was from Oxford; her grandfather, from Thame. Whatever her origin, she maintained a great fondness for the Liddell family even after leaving their service. Prickett went on to manage the Mitre Inn with her husband.
Caryl Hargreaves visited the inn and stayed in Prickett's quarters. He found the rooms full of pictures of the Liddell children. He would stand at the door of his furniture shop For decades, Baillie's explanation has been accepted.
Carter, it was assumed, had committed some undocumented offense against Dodgson and earned himself caricature as the Mad Hatter. But this theory took sixty years to emerge, likely because there simply was no other obvious candidate. Following Baillie's letter, people seemed to glom on to the idea. WJ Ryland wrote to The Times a few weeks later, noting that Carter had submitted an "alarm clock bed," which dumped its occupant out at the appointed hour, at the Great Exhibition at the Crystal Palace, illustrating Carter's eccentricity.
It's true that two such contraptions were exhibited, but neither was associated with Carter. Liddell's correspondence, however, offers another possibility. She published only one recollection of her childhood, which appeared in the July edition of Cornhill Magazine. Liddell recalls that a "special pleasure was to be allowed to take Rover out for a walk. Rover was a retriever belonging to a well-known Oxford tailor, called Randall. Alice and her sisters regularly visited the Randall home, so she would have been quite familiar with him.
Dodgson would also have known him, at least as a personality.

Randall was embroiled in the "Town and Gown" dispute with Oxford University in The disagreement pitted local merchants against Oxford for its failure to control students properly. Oxford students were known to run up incredible bills with local clothing merchants, who assumed the students' parents would pay the bills.
But as more and more students were found to be truly penniless, the merchants banded together and pressured the university to watch the students more closely.
Randall was particularly vocal during the entire dispute--and he was hardly conciliatory. Yet his harsh stance apparently did little to affect public opinion; he was elected Mayor of Oxford in The government official may also have been on Dodgson's radar for quite another reason: Randall was known to be "scholar enough to do verses and essays, as well as impositions, for the incapable and the idle. Whatever the inspiration behind Charles Dodgson's characters, the story of Alice has endured for generations. It remains a popular focus for collectors of Victorian literature and children's books.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
By Kristin Masters. Jan 27, Who Was the Real Alice? Dodgson invited John Tenniel to illustrate the book, which was published in as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Some suggest that Dodgson's relationship with Liddell was more sinister than safe, but there's no direct evidence to support this claim. Prickett with the Liddell children and Lewis Carroll The name "Prickett" is relatively distinctive and quite common in the neighboring town of Binsey, so people--including Dodgson-- likely assumed that Prickett hailed from Binsey.
