  • Lucy Barfield was the godchild of C.S. Lewis. The proof is in the front of the book The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe in the letter to Lucy. Owen Barfield, a close friend of Lewis since 1919, married musician and choreographer Maud Douie in 1923. They had two children: Alexander, born in 1928, his younger sister Lucy, born in 1935. Geoffrey, born in 1940, was a foster child. In May 1949, Lewis sent Lucy the completed manuscript of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe with a letter in which he said: "I wrote this story for you." On the 16 October 1950, when the book was published, this letter became its dedication. In September 1952 Lewis dedicated his The Voyage of the Dawn Treader to Geoffrey.
