Good point Alex, I was just about to post something similar (having read the other posts.)

AR was writing in, and of, a time when (in the UK) left-handedness was seen as an aberration and children would be 'forced' to use their right hand even to the extent of having their left one strapped up so they couldn't use it.

I also think that given how AR wrote, if a character was left-handed he would have said so!
