In response to Jane Austen's husband?, written by Kelly McCormack on December 11, 1997 at 16:28:09
] Hi, my roommate is taking a class on Jane Austen and one of the questions on her final is this- What was the name of Jane Austen's husband? My roommate remembers the teacher mentioning that she married for a very short time to a younger man, but she can't find the name anywhere! Her final is tomorrow, and I told her I'd help her. Can anyone help me? Thanks a lot!
His name was Lord Chumley Churchyard of Devonshire, the third cousin of Peter the Great, but a hopeless imbecile who already kept a lowly wife, a former servant, in his Dark Tower. Thankfully, the Church of England anulled the alliance without question, preserving Miss Austen's name and reputation.
