Phiz’s Pickwick Papers
1850s
‘Phiz’ was the nickname of
Hablot Knight Browne.

He was an illustrator who
provided drawings for 10
of Charles Dickens’ novels,
including the Pickwick Papers.

Knight Browne took the nickname ‘Phiz’
to complement Dickens’ nickname, ‘Boz’.

He moved to Croydon in about 1846
and lived with his wife and children
in Thornton Heath
and later on Duppas Hill.
