Charlotte Bronte’s husband, the Irish-man, Arthur Bell Nicholls, returned to his home town of Banagher in 1861. He brought with him all the remaining goods of the now deceased Bronte family, including Charlotte Bronte’s wedding dress and jewellery, Emily Bronte’s writing desk and manuscripts, the Rev. Patrick Bronte’s gun, the Bronte children’s tiny books and more.
Nicholls cherished all these items and most of them are now on display in the Bronte Parsonage Museum in Howarth. Dr Maebh O’Regan has chosen fifteen items from the Irish legacy to explore the fascinating story of the gifted Bronte women and their talented but troubled brother.
