Want to find out a little more about the Jane Austen Society?

Founded in 1940 by Dorothy Darnell, its primary purpose was to raise funds to preserve the Cottage in the village of Chawton, Hampshire, where Jane Austen lived with her mother and sister Cassandra from 1809 to 1817.

Her brother Edward had inherited the Chawton estate from wealthy relatives and offered the former steward’s cottage, dating from the early 18th century, to his mother and sisters as a permanent home. He improved the cottage and the ladies moved in on 7th July 1809.

Find out which novels she wrote whilst living there and how the cottage came to be known today as Jane Austen's House: janeaustensociety.org.uk/about-us/history-of-the-society/
