There were four in total. The very first was the ghost of his dead business partner Jacob Marley. Jacob is allowed back to the realm of the living to warn Scrooge that his miserly nasty ways will see him die soon and his afterlife would be spent like Marley's in everlasting torment. To that end Marley foretells of 3 more visitations all of whom would seek to help Scrooge make the changes that would see his life and after life change

Who does ignorance and want belong to from the Christmas carol?

Ignorance and Want are two children hidden beneath the robes of the Spirit of Christmas Present. At the very end of the Spirit's visit, Scrooge notices two "claws" protruding from underneath. The Spirit parts his robes to reveal the boy and girl, both of whom are in an awful condition. When Scrooge asks to whom they belong, the Spirit answers, "They are Man's." It is, however, the boy that the Spirit especially warns Scrooge against. Ignorance must be erased, the Spirit seems to say, or he spells doom for the race. When Scrooge asks if there is no refuge or resource for the children, the Spirit turns Scrooge's own words against him. "Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses?" These are the last words Scrooge hears from this visitor.
