Jane Austen's Family
The subject of this website is the genealogy of the Austen family: Jane Austen's
ancestors; the descendants of her brothers; and details of many of the other
families associated with them. It begins with Joan Corder's Akin to Jane -
the first genealogical study of George Austen and Cassandra Leigh's
descendants. This work, written in 1953,has until now
only been available in manuscript.
Research since then has revealed vastly more information. Joan
Corder listed just over 300 individuals, but there are now more
than 1200 on record with many still missing. In addition,
I have done a great deal of work on the Austens' ancestors.
Details will be found on the Recent Research link.
A few genealogical articles are posted here, and more are planned.
