Orphaned almost from his first breath by his mother’s death in childbirth and his father’s unexplained absence, Oliver is meagrely provided for under the terms of the Poor Law, and spends the first eight years of his life at a baby farm in the ‘care’ of a woman named Mrs Mann. Along with other juvenile offenders against the poor laws, Oliver is brought up with little food and few comforts.
