The Deptford Mice Wiki

William Godwin (b. 6 July 1653) was a young boy who was left an orphan when his entire family died of smallpox. After receiving a letter from his uncle, whom he had never met, he headed to London to meet him. However, once there he was attacked by two thieves and found shelter in the apothecary shop of the evil alchemist Elias Theophrastus Spittle. He was then promptly made his assistant and sent to do his every bidding. On one of his tasks in the winter of 1664 he came across a cat and her kittens and brought them back to the shop. Eventually he discovered the truth as to why he was kidnapped by Spittle; the alchemist was his estranged uncle and wanted to take his inheritance. Will escaped him leaving the burning capital behind carrying the last surviving kitten—who would later become Jupiter.

Will returned home to Adcombe, reclaiming his father's lands which had been stolen from him. He died peacefully in his sleep at the age of 89.
