Jane Austen possessions donated to Lyme Regis Museum
Wednesday 14th December, saw a special Jane Austen evening at the
Museum. Volunteer, Diana Shervington has the distinction that both of
her grandmothers were grand-daughters of Jane Austens's brother, Edward
Knight. Many of the Austen family's possessions have been handed down
through the generations to Diana and the event was a celebration of
Diana donating several interesting pieces to the Museum where they will
be on permanent display.
