Overview

For more than thirty years, Deirdre Le Faye, one of the world's leading authorities on Jane Austen, has been gathering and organizing every single piece of information available about the Austen family before, during and after Jane's lifetime. She has now collected all this material together to produce a unique chronology, containing some ten thousand entries. The entries, many taken from hitherto unexplored and unpublished documents, are presented in a clear and readable form, and each item of information is linked to its source. The volume includes family trees for the extended Austen and Knight families from the sixteenth to the twentieth century.
