Jane Austen's House, Chawton :: Shared Description

Jane Austen's House in Chawton near Alton in Hampshire, is where the famous and still much-admired authoress lived for the last eight years of her life (from 1809 to 1817) - although she actually died in Winchester where she had gone due to her final illness.

Pride & Prejudice, Sense & Sensibilty, Emma, Persuasion and Mansfield Park.
Jane was born on Saturday 16th December 1775 at Steventon Rectory Link
