. He and his sisters grew up in the town of Haworth, a relatively isolated place, though not so bad as you may have heard. Maria died of cancer in 1821, and the two oldest daughters died of consumption in 1825 , which made the four surviving kids ( Charlotte , Branwell, Emily , and Anne ) really stick together. Together they created the worlds of Gondal and Angria, epic sorts of kingdoms populated partly by Branwell's toy soldiers. Branwell and Charlotte worked together on poems and stories about Angria (leaving Anne and Emily to work together on Gondal), and though he was very fond of writing, it was decided early on that Branwell would be a painter . He was apprenticed to a portrait painter named William Robinson, who passed all of his bad habits along to Branwell. William's most notable failure as a teacher was in neglecting to show Branwell the proper way to mix paint. His portrait of his sisters, which now hangs in the National Gallery and is quite popular, shows the problem with this: Branwell had originally put himself in the painting, then decided to remove his likeness by painting over it. This paint is now fading, revealing Branwell's ghostly image. Neat!

Main Index Who's Who
Branwell Bronte
Branwell first came to the attention of the Kindred of York through his early attempts at poetry. Although these were notably unsuccessful, they attracted the interest of Marie, who found the moody and passionate young man enchanting. As 'Mrs. Robinson', she invited him to some of her mortal gatherings. Branwell was desperately in love with her and thought of nothing but ways of keeping her passion for himself. Her free manners and numerous other young male companions drove him to despair and he addressed a great deal of rather bad but very impassioned poetry to her. Marie had been pursued by ardent and despairing mortal lovers before and had acquired a high resistance to poems of any quality. Never the less, she found his fevered attentions amusing. She permitted him to seduce her and Branwell joined her little set of ghouls. Then, Lord Marcus met Branwell at one of Marie's parties. He conceived one of his great passions for the young man and set about trying to seduce him away from Marie. It might have remained nothing more than a brief obsession and would probably have passed, but for Marie. Seeing an opportunity to spite Marcus she petitioned the Council for permission to Embrace the young man. Although she didn't really mean to carry it through, she knew it would drive Marcus mad. In fact that's exactly what it did. Marcus waylaid Branwell as he was leaving Marie's house one night. Without explanation, he attacked, drained and Embraced him. The experience proved too traumatic for the already unbalanced young man. He reacted to Marcus with loathing and proved too difficult for even Marie to properly control. In the first few months of his unlife, he escaped from her control several times. He Embraced his two younger sisters, even travelling to Scarborough where Anne had been moved for her protection.

    The Parsonage
    Thornton (see also Haworth. parsonage there in April, 1820. Haworth Church. In "Anne, dear gentle Anne was quite different in appearance from the others, and she was her aunt's favourite. Her hair was a very pretty light brown, and fell on her neck in graceful curls. She had lovely violet-blue eyes, fine pencilled eyebrows and a clear almost transparent complexion. She still pursued her studies and especially her sewing, under the surveillance of her aunt. " (Chitham, 1991, p. 39) One of Anne's activities during the holidays was playing at the Gondals with Emily. The first of Anne's known poems, "Verses by Lady Geralda", dates from Christmas 1836. The next, "Alexander and Zenobia", is dated July 1st, 1837. Both are set firmly in the world of Gondal. They deal with clearly fictional characters, and bear their signatures. Though there is disagreement over the categorization of Anne's poetry into Gondal and non-Gondal poetry, most of the poems which are 'signed' by Gondal characters seem to have been written during or immediately after periods of proximity to Emily. Anne and Charlotte do not appear to have been close during their time at Roe Head (Charlotte's letters almost never mention Anne) but Charlotte was concerned about the health of her sister. At some point prior to December 1837, Anne became seriously ill and underwent a religious crisis. (Mrs. Gaskell incorrectly gives the time of Anne's illness as a year later, in

Emily Bronte
Search all of Emily Bronte Emily Bronte (1818-1848) is perhaps the greatest writer of the three Brontë sisters - Charlotte, Emily and Anne. Emily Brontë published only one novel, Wuthering Heights (1847), a story of doomed love and revenge. But that single work places has its place among the masterpieces of English literature. Some of her best lyrics are also rated with the best in English poetry.
Emily Bronte was born in Thornton, Yorkshire, on July 30, 1818. Her father was the rector of Haworth from 1820. After their mother died in 1821, the children spent most of their time in reading and composition. To escape their unhappy childhood, Anne, Emily, Charlotte and their brother Branwell created imaginary worlds. Emily and Anne created their own Gondal saga, and Branwell and Charlotte recorded their stories about the kingdom of Angria in minute notebooks. Between the years 1824 and 1825 Emily attended the school at Cowan Bridge with Charlotte, and then was largely educated at home.
In 1835 Emily attended school at Roe Head, but suffered from homesickness and returned after a few months to the moorland scenery of home. In 1837 she became a governess at Law Hill, near Halifax, where she spent six months. To facilitate their plan to keep a school for girls, Emily and Charlotte Brontë went in 1842 to Brussels to learn foreign languages and school management. Emily returned on the same year to Haworth, where she stayed for the rest of her brief life.

The Branwell/Brontë Samplers
By Lori Bell
    M aria Branwell completed her sampler April 15, 1791. She was 8 years old. Her sampler was a simple one, comprised of an alphabet, biblical text and a simple geometric border. It is worked with dark green silk and pink and ginger brown wool on canvas.
    Maria's sampler is the first of a unique family collection. The collection is not unique for the style or technical expertise displayed by the embroiderers. It's interest lies in the fact that three of Maria's daughters grew up to become noted Victorian authors; the Brontë sisters.
    M aria's sisters, Ann, Margaret, and Elizabeth Branwell each completed a similar sampler worked in the same dark green silk. Ann Branwell, later Ann Kingston, signed but did not date her sampler. Margaret Branwell signed and dated her work March 23, 1799. Sister Elizabeth finished her signed sampler on 11 October. The date has been lost due to a torn corner. O n December 29, 1812, Maria Branwell married Reverend Patrick Brontë. In 1820 the family moved to Haworth, West Yorkshire, England, where Maria died a year later. In 1822 Maria's youngest sister, Elizabeth began caring for the six Brontë children. That same year the eldest Brontë children, Maria, age 8, Elizabeth, age 7, and Charlotte, age 6, each completed a sampler similar to that described earlier, except that they were worked entirely in ginger brown wool. I n 1824 the three sisters, along with Emily, age 6, were sent off to a clergy daughter's boarding school. Within a few months the two older sisters became ill and died of tuberculosis. Charlotte and Emily returned to Haworth parsonage and their remaining siblings Branwell, age 7, and Anne, age 4. While at Haworth the children spent much of their time writing involved melodramatic chronicles. Traces of this early writing surface in the sister's later works.

Search all of Anne Bronte Anne Bronte (1820-1849) , English writer, sister of Charlotte Brontë and Emily Brontë. Anne Brontë is best known for her novels Agnes Grey (1847) and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848), which are generally considered more conservative novels than those of her sisters.
Anne Brontë was born in Thornton, Yorkshire. She was the youngest of six children of Patrick and Maria Brontë, and educated largely at home. After the death of her mother in 1821, and the two eldest sisters, Anne was left with her sisters and brother to the care of their father and aunt, Elisabeth Branwell. The girls' real education was at the Haworth parsonage, in which Mr. Brontë settled the year before his wife's death. They read the Bible, Homer, Virgil, Shakespeare, Milton, Byron, Scott and many others. Inspired by a box of 12 wooden soldiers, the children wove tales and legends associated with remote Africa. Emily and Anne created their own Gondal saga, and Charlotte and Branwell recorded their Angria stories in minute notebooks.
In 1839 Anne worked for a short period as a governess to the Inghams at Blake Hall and later in same position to the Robinsons at Thorpe Green Hall from 1841 to 1845. Her brother Branwell joined her there as a tutor in 1843. He unfortunately fell in love with Mrs Robinson and Anne had to leave the work.

In 1824, the four eldest daughters were sent to Cowan Bridge School, a school for daughters of impoverished clergymen. The conditions were harsh and an epidemic soon broke out, taking the lives of Maria and Elizabeth. Charlotte becames very ill as well, and she and Emily were sent home to Haworth. About this time, Branwell, the only boy in the family, received a box of twelve wooden soldiers. The children began to write stories about them called the "Young Men" plays. In 1835, Charlotte became a teacher at Roe Head school and Emily joined her as a student. Emily, however, could not stand being away from her beloved moors, and became violently homesick.

If you call yourself a romantic, you must have, at one point in your life, found yourself enraptured by either or both Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights , the incredibly passion-filled novels of these sheltered daughters of an English minister and his wife . The beauty of the words, the wonderful character development, and vivid descriptive images shine through even today, though the settings are over 150 years old.
Having been fascinated by these ladies for most of my life, I present informational links to each of the sisters, as well as the family itself, which provide information, images, and mutual admiration for the brilliant talents of this cloistered, and often shy, family of remarkable genius.

Sir Henry Tunstall
[Actually a portion of a long poem which was part of the Angrian story, this tells of Sir Henry's reaction upon returning home after sixteen years as a soldier in India.] They fancied, when they saw me home returning, That all my soul to meet with them was yearning, That every wave I'd bless which bore me hither; They thought my spring of life could never wither. That in the dry the green leaf I could keep, As pliable as youth to laugh or weep; They did not think how oft my eyesight turned Toward the skies where Indian Sunshine burned, That I had perhaps left an associate band, That I had farewells even for that wild Land; They did not think my head and heart were older, My strength more broken and my feelings colder, That spring was hastening into autumn sere - And leafless trees make loveliest prospects drear - That sixteen years the same ground travel o'er Till each wears out the mark which each has left before.

Biography of Charlotte Bronte (1816-55)
Charlotte Bronte was born in 1816, the third child of Reverend Patrick Bronte and Maria Branwell Bronte. The couple had a total of six children before Maria Bronte died of cancer in 1821. The Reverend Bronte subsequently treated his children Maria, Elizabeth, Charlotte, Patrick Branwell, Emily, and Anne in a severe manner. He also had the five girls sent to school at Cowan Bridge. At the Clergy Daughter's school conditions were poor. When fever broke out at the school, Maria and Elizabeth succumbed to the disease. Consequently, Charlotte, Emily, and Anne were withdrawn and brought home. The children's aunt, Aunt Bess became their new instructor. Though the four children were deeply affected by the death of their two sisters they filled their spare time with endeavors to fulfill their imaginations. This was perhaps necessary given the fact that the environment that surrounded them was the dreary moor of Yorkshire, England. For example, when their father gave Patrick Branwell a box of toy soldiers, they used these miniatures as a source of inspiration to begin their respective writing adventures. Thus, the Bronte children began to write at an early age as a response to the fantasies of their youth. Charlotte Bronte was sent away to the Roe Head School in 1831. Her father's health was in jeopardy, and he wanted his daughter to be capable of being economically independent. Mrs. Wooler headed the Roe Head school. There were seven to ten students at the school during the two years that Charlotte spent at the school. The school was more like a small family than a boarding school.
