Tiny Tim, or rather Timothy Cratchit, was six years old in 1843 (the year of the book's publication and setting). Therefore, he was born sometime in 1837. At the end it says that Tiny Tim does not die and Scrooge becomes like a second father to him. Scrooge was born, raised and spent his youth in the Georgian times, by the way. Anyway, Tim was born in the start of Queen Victoria's reign, and in my opinion he lives throughout the entire reign of Queen Victoria, eventually travels to America late in Queen Victoria's reign, his grandson strikes gold, he lives throughout Edwardian times, his granddaughter eventually becomes a young flapper and actress in the 20's, and he eventually dies in 1937 in a very different world to his youth in Victorian England. He gets run over by a Model T Ford.
