  1. But where did Jane danced from the age of 16 to 25 when the family moved to Bath? She came to Basingstoke to dance and shop. Please don’t forget this in the story of Jane Austen as she was already writing while in Steventon. These balls are part of the inspiration for her novels.

  2. A really enjoyable article which manages to convey genuine excitement about the fascinating collection of personal Austen family documents held by the Hampshire Archive. I have adored Jane Austen’s novels since I was a teenager but I had not realised that Hampshire was her birthplace. The inclusion of extracts from some of the records and documents gives an intriguing hint at the range of the full collection.
