Jane Austen’s will

Jane Austen was at home at Chawton in Hampshire when she wrote her will on 27th April 1817. She was ill with what is now thought to have been Addison’s disease, a rare hormonal disorder.

Just days later, she moved to Winchester to be nearer to her doctor. She died on 18th July 1817 and was buried in the cathedral at Winchester.
