Census Celebrities: Charlotte & Emily Bronte

Genealogy ResearchHere’s one for the literature fans. England’s 1841 census shows Charlotte Bronte, the author of Jane Eyre, working as a governess not far from her home in Yorkshire, a career she pursued from 1839 to 1841 before any of the Bronte sisters published their work. Her younger sisters Emily and Anne Bronte however are found living at Haworth Parsonage with their father, Patrick Bronte, and their Aunt Elizabeth Bramwell.
