Pip was certainly born sometime in the early 1800's. It is believed that Pip could have been born (not my estimation) in 1802.

"By the best reckoning we can make Pip is born in 1802 (some 10 years before

Dickens) and his first encounter with Magwitch takes place in 1809. His second

encounter – and the crisis in the action – takes place when he is 23: in 1825, or thereabouts."

in the 1800s dude
