A Christmas Carol

Who is the mother of Fan since Scrooges mother died in his childbirth? She is younger than him so she is obviously a "half-sister," correct?

Does Dickens reference this anywhere? I've looked in an annotateda version and nothing.

No I don't think it is referenced anywhere. The conflict between Scrooge's mother dying during his own birth (and father blaming him) is never resolved in reference to his sister Fran. It is possible she was a half sister.
