Amanda White Print: The Brontë Family at Thornton Parsonage

From an original cut paper collage

£12.95

In 1815 Patrick Brontë, his wife Maria and their daughters Maria and
Elizabeth, moved into Thornton Parsonage in the village of that name
close to Bradford, after Mr Brontë was appointed local vicr. Twenty years
later he fondly recalled: "My happiest days were spent there."
By 1820 the family had considerably grown to include Charlotte, born 1816,
Branwell, 1817, Emily in 1818 and Anne, the baby of the family, in 1820.
Fortunatley, given the increasingly cramped conditions at home, Mr Brontë
was offered the perpetual curacy at Haworth with its larger parsonage.
So it was that in the spring of 1820 the family travelled some six
miles across the moors to the village which would be
forever linked to their name.
