Jane Austen (1775-1817) lived her entire life as part of a family located socially and economically on the lower fringes of the English gentry.

The Rev. George Austen and Cassandra Leigh, Jane Austens parents, lived in Steventon, Hampshire, where Rev. Austen was the rector of the Anglican parish from 1765 until 1801. Jane Austens immediate family was large and close-knit. She had six brothers-James, George, Charles, Francis, Henry, and Edward-and a beloved older sister, Cassandra. Austens brother Edward was adopted by Thomas and Elizabeth Knight and eventually inherited their estates at Godmersham, Kent, and Chawton, Hampshire.

In 1801, Rev. Austen retired from the ministry and moved his family to Bath, Somerset. He died in 1805 and for the next four years, Jane, Cassandra, and their mother lived first in rented quarters and then in Southampton where they shared a house with Frank Austens family. During these unsettled years, they spent much time visiting various branches of the family. In 1809, Jane, Cassandra, and their mother moved permanently into a large cottage in Chawton village that was part of Edwards nearby estate.

Austen lived at Chawton until she moved to Winchester for medical treatment shortly before her death in 1817.
