What does the lovely county of Hampshire have in connection with the timeless tale of Alice in Wonderland? Well, the answer is the girl behind the story herself!
The Alice in Wonderland inspiration was in fact Alice Pleasance Liddell, who was the little girl who inspired Lewis Carrolls Alices Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. Under her married name of Alice Hargreaves, she came to live in Lyndhurst, Hampshire and was a popular society hostess.
Alice was just four years old when Lewis Carrol, whose real name was Charles Dodgson, became a friend of the family. His amazing stories were made up to entertain young Alice and her sisters on a boat outing and formed the basis for Alices Adventures Under Ground, the first draft of the Alice stories, which went on to become the most popular childrens books in England.
Alices connection with the New Forest in Hampshire began in 1880 after she married Reginald Hargreaves, who had inherited the Cuffnells country estate near Lyndhurst. Alice became a society heiress and was the first president of Emery Down Womens Institute. She is believed to have found the association of being the original storybook Alice something of a burden.
Tragedy struck during World War I when the Alice and her husband lost two of their sons, Alan and Leopold in active service. A monument to them can be found in the baptistry at the Church of St Michael and All Angels in Lyndhurst, Hampshire. Reginald never recovered from the shock of their loss and died in 1926.
Alice found it difficult to cope with the cost of maintaining Cuffnells on her own and was felt she had to sell some of her Alice memorabilia, including the manuscript of Alices Adventures Under Ground given to her by Dodgson all those years before. The manuscript fetched the huge sum of £15,400 at auction, this being almost four times the reserve price.
Alice went to America in 1932 to attend celebrations that marked the centenary of Lewis Carrols birth. She became totally exhausted by the many thousands of letters she received afterwards from Alice fans and by her life being intruded upon by the media of the time. Alice died just two years later.
Alice was returned home and her ashes were interred in the family grave at St Michael and All Angels church in Lyndhurst, Hampshire. A memorial to Reginald and Alice and their third son, Caryl, who died in 1955, can be seen on the end of the family pew.
Unfortunately her home of Cuffnells was requisitioned during World War II and never returned to its former glory. This historic building was sadly demolished in the early 1950s, but many fans of the Carrol books still make a pilgrimage to Hampshire to visit the parts Alice lived in and knew so well.
