Charles Dickens In October 1842 whilst visiting Padstow, Charles Dickens was greatly inspired and penned a Christmas Carol in which he based the character Jacob Marley on his good friend Dr. Miles Marley. His son Dr. Henry Frederick Marley practiced in Padstow for 51 years and died at his home in St. Issey on 27th January 1908.
