Jane Austen was born into the rural professional middle class. Her father, George Austenwas a country clergyman at Steventon, a small village in the southern English county of Hampshire.
He had risen by merit from a Kentish family in trade and the lower professions. Jane Austen's mother, Cassandra Leigh Austenwas from a higher social rank, minor gentry related distantly to titled people, but once she married the Reverend Austen in she entered wholeheartedly and with humor into the domestic life and responsibilities of managing a household economy by no means luxurious, bearing eight children--six sons and two daughters.
In this setting the Austens mingled easily with other gentrified professionals and with local gentry families. Yet they were also linked, though tenuously in some ways, with the larger world of fashionable society and of patronage, politics, and state.
George Austen owed his education at Oxford University to his own merit as a student at Tonbridge School, but he owed his clerical position, or "living," at Steventon to the patronage of a wealthy relative, Thomas Knight of Godmersham Park, Kent, who held the appointment in his gift.
Later the Knights, who were childless, adopted one of the Austens' sons, Edward, as their own son and heir to their estates in Kent and Hampshire. Local friends of the Austens included the Reverend George Lefroy and his wife, Anne, sister of an eccentric, novel-writing, obsessively aristocratic Kentish squire, Sir Samuel Egerton Brydges.This detailed literature summary also contains Bibliography on A Vindication of the Rights of Woman by Mark Wollstonecraft.
