The allegations of pedophilia rose initially from a misunderstanding of Victorian morals, as well as the mistaken idea, fostered by Dodgson's various biographers, that he had no interest in adult women. His diaries show he was keenly interested in adult women, married and single, and enjoyed several scandalous (by the social standards of his time) relationships with them. In later life, many of those he described as "child-friends" were girls in their late teens and even twenties. Suggestions of pedophila evolved only many years after his death, when his well-meaning family had suppressed all evidence of his relationships with women an effort to preserve his reputation, thus giving a false impression of a man interested only in little girls.
