in consequence of the missive, M.T. Th e Austen's first home, penned by Caroline
] Deane today is remarkably unchanged. It's still a little cluster of houses and a church, on a sort of corner of the road. The Deane Gate Inn, where the London coach stopped, is still there, too, and Cheesedown farm. A remarkably quiet little backwater, in fact, with some nice Georgian architecture and some cottages with roses around the door.....
Has anyone found any info on the fate of the inconvenient Deane home? I've found references to the destruction of the Steventon house in the 1820s, but nothing on what happened to the Deane parsonage.
