Bronte, Charlotte

Charlotte Brontë (1816-55) was born at Thornton, Yorkshire, the third child of Patrick Brontë and Maria Branwell. For three years she taught at Miss Wooler's school at Roe Head and was subsequently a governess. In 1842, she went with her sister Emily to study languages at the Pesionnat Heger in Brussels, where she later taught. She wrote three other novels: Jane Eyre (1847), Shirley (1849) and The Professor (published posthumously in 1857). In 1854, Charlotte finally overcame her father's objections and married, but she was to die the following year.
