AND I RESPOND:
Carroll's writings fell into public domain decades ago, and that includes
the 2 Alice books and all their characters. Marianne is only a
'semi-invention', though. You may recall that the White Rabbit confused
Alice with his maid, Marianne, so she apparently was as 'real' a person in
Wonderland as anyone else.
