The Jenkins family knew the Bront?s in Brussels and West Yorkshire. Eager to learn about them, their descendant read the Bront? biographies, and discovered that no one had researched this family, and, worse, that what was written was fabricated, with one biographer copying another, embroidering, even making up dialogue. Yet Mrs Gaskell had deliberately sought out Mrs Jenkins when researching her famous ‘Life of Charlotte’. If it had not been for Mrs Jenkins, Charlotte would never have gone to Brussels, never met M. Heger. There would be no ‘Villette’, no ‘Jane Eyre’.
