  • ID: I63
  • Name: Jane ATKINS 1 2
  • Sex: F
  • Change Date: 20 AUG 2012
  • Note: Jonathan Atkins and Mary Howard were categorically not the parents of Jane Austen's ancestor Jane Atkins, although many would have it. Jane Austen's nephews the Austen-Leighs made this claim, but it is incorrect. Her gravestone styles her as daughter of John Atkins of Brightling, Sussex, and her baptismal record is in the parish register for Brighling, listing her father John (but not naming her mother). The Sussex County archivists insist that there is no record that associates Sir Jonathan Atkins with Brightling. 3
