It might well have been chemistry with which George Austen's good looks had much to do. According to Jane Austen's nephew J.E. Austen-Leigh, George Austen was very good looking even when he got older. "Mr Austen was a remarkably good-looking man, both in his youth and his old age. During his year of office at Oxford he had been called 'the handsome Proctor'; and at Bath, when more than seventy years old, he attracted observation by his fine features and abundance of snow-white hair.
