You will find in this section some of the objects that belonged to the Brontë family and which are kept in the Brontë Parsonage Museum archives. Enjoy this new article!
Diary paper, 1834
This diary paper is the first of a series of papers made by Emily and Anne. It centres on the domestic goings-on in the Brontës’ daily life at the Parsonage, mentioning their chores, animals and their imaginary world, Gondal. The diary paper was written by Emily, aged 16, but the hair on page 1 has been drawn by Anne, 14.
