The Bronte sisters

  • Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte were 19th Century novelists who formed one of the world’s most famous literary families
  • Often left alone together in their isolated Haworth home, all three sisters began to write stories at an early age
  • Charlotte’s Jane Eyre and Emily’s Wuthering Heights are hailed as British classics. Anne’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall was a bestseller
  • Tragedy struck the family when Emily and Anne both died of tuberculosis within six months of each other between 1848 and 1849. It also killed their brother, Branwell
  • Charlotte continued to write and later married but died in the early stages of pregnancy in 1855, according to the Bronte Society.
