Jane Austen

Jane Austen was born in 1775 at Steventon, Hampshire. She was the seventh child of the local rector, and her life was by modern standards uneventful. In 1801 she moved with her parents to Bath, but returned to Hampshire when her father died, settling in the village of Chawton. She remained there until 1817, when she moved to Winchester to be within easy reach of her doctor. She died that year, aged forty-one. Four of her novels, including Pride and Prejudice, were published anonymously in her lifetime; Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, along with several shorter works, appeared posthumously. She never married.
