Jane Austen lived at Chawton ( in what is now the Jane Austen House Museum ) from 1809 until 1817, when she moved to Winchester where she died on July 18th, 1817. Chawton estate, including The Great House ( now The Chawton House Library) was owned at that time by Jane Austen’s brother, Edward Austen Knight, and he offered Mrs Austen, Jane ,Cassandra and Martha Lloyd the house for their use.

This road map by Edward Mogg show part of the route from London to Southampton. The map shows the position of Jane Austen’s House in Chawton (at the junction of the road from Farnham with that of the one to Gosport) and also Chawton Park. It records John Charles Middleton, who was Edward Austen Knight’s tenant from 1808-1813, as the occupier of Chawton House and Chawton Park. The map is dated 1814.
