Dr Johnsons House, London. Compiler of first English Dictionary.

Do you remember an episode of Black Adder the Third called Ink and Incapability which features a Dr Johnson played by Robbie Coltrane?, well
yesterday I visited Dr Johnsons House in London, Samuel Johnson compiled the first comprehensive English Dictionary here.
This museum can be found at 17 Gough Square, London.

It was really interesting visiting this museum, if you get chance do it, just follow the grey signs near by and go through the archway into the courtyard area.

He was maried at St Werburgh's church, Derby to Elizabeth (Tetty) Porter in July 9th 1735.
