Bram Stoker 1847 – 1912
Dublin – Whitby – London
Abraham “Bram” Stoker’s Gothic imagination was stoked from an early age. Born during the Irish Famine in the Dublin suburb of Clontarf, he spent the first seven years of his life mysteriously ill in bed, entertained by his mother with gruesome tales of cholera epidemics and banshees.
Dutifully following his father into the civil service at Dublin Castle, he filed reports by day and started writing darkly romantic stories by night. Stoker also became a theatre critic for the local papers. When he met his idol, Shakespearian actor Henry Irving, he offered him the job of manager at the Lyceum Theatre in London. Leaping at the chance, Stoker swiftly married renowned local beauty, Florence Balcombe and they moved to England. His ashes are laid to rest in Golders Green Crematorium in London.
