I have just passed a fascinating few hours on this website. It is a wonderful tribute to the most underrated of the Bronte sisters. I am putting together a course on 'governessing' and thought that I would be unable to find enough information on Anne, compared to Charlotte.

You have created a fine resource and the love you have for the subject shows through.

Thank you for this interesting web site. The Brontes, their lives, works and times greatly influenced my own youth. Now, after a lifetime of ‘other things’, your web site has inspired me to re-visit these treasured old friends. I look forward to renewing my acquaintance with them and discovering whether or not they, or I have changed along the way!

Dear Mr. Armitage,
Thank you for this comprehensive website concerning Anne's Scarborough connection. Your site has been wonderfully helpful in setting the scene for a novel I am writing in which my characters will honeymoon at Wood's Lodging and explore the area in September of 1851.
I am curious about the particulars of staying at lodgings such as the one Anne stayed in. Such accommodations seemed to be the precursor to the modern-day hotel. The hotel era seems to begin in earnest only a decade or so after Anne's passing, as evidenced in the construction of the Grand Hotel and others throughout England.
Thank you again for all the photos, drawings, quotes, and descriptions of the places and scenes of Scarborough. I must plan to someday visit the place which is now becoming so real in my mind's eye! And now I am also thoroughly curious to read "Agnes Grey" and "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall."

Thank you for your very informative website. I particularly enjoyed the pages about your trip to Thorp Green. I have visited the village and Little Ouseburn church with my father; we have relatives buried in the graveyard. I have two branches of my family who were resident in Thorp Green at a similar time to Ann Brontë. In the 1841 and 1851 census’ you will find the Hallaways family (from my fathers side) and the Leeming family (from my mothers side, living in one of the stripe houses, which you describe). Ann must have moved to the village after the 1841 census was taken on 7th June 1841. The Hallaways and Leeming families must have known each other but they did not unite until my parents married in 1963. We still have the pleasure of living in the Scarborough area. I have corrected the Brontë 1841 census entry on the Ancestry website to reflect the correct spelling of their surname.
