 Anne Brontë
Anne was born 17 January 1820, youngest child of Patrick Brontë and Maria Branwell Brontë.
When Branwell died in September of 1848, it was Anne who took over many of the necessary arrangements, as Charlotte had taken ill. When Emily died of consumption three months later, Charlotte was the pillar of strength, as Anne herself was beginning to feel the first symptoms of her own fatal illness.
In 1843, Branwell went with Anne to the Robinsons' to act as tutor to the older boys of the family.

 ipedia.com: Anne Brontë Article
Anne Brontë (January 17, 1820- May 28, 1849) was a British author, one of a trio of famous Brontë sisters who wrote acclaimed Victorian romantic novels of manners and society.
Anne's poetry was published, along with that of her sisters, in 1845, under the pseudonym "Acton Bell".
Anne died at the seaside resort of Scarborough, England which was also the setting for both of her novels.

When Charlotte discovered Emily’s poetry in 1845, Anne revealed hers, and the next year the collected poems of the three sisters, published at their own expense, appeared under the pseudonyms Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell.
Anne, whose Tenant of Wildfell Hall appeared in 1848, also died of tuberculosis in May, 1849.
In 1847 Emily’s novel Wuthering Heights and Anne’s Agnes Grey were published as a set.

 E316K -- Bremen
And as self-conceiving women from Anne Finch and Anne Elliot to Emily Brontë and Emily Dickinson rose from the glass coffin of the male-authored text, as they exploded out of the Queen’s looking glass, the old silent dance of death became a dance of triumph, a dance into speech, a dance of authority.
Once more the debate in which Austen’s Anne Elliot and her Captain Harville engage is relevant here, for it is surely no accident that the question these two characters are discussing is woman’s "inconstancy"—her refusal, that is, to be fixed or "killed" by an author/owner, her stubborn insistence on her own way.
Finch’s despairing (if ironic) acceptance of male expectations and designs summarizes in a single episode the coercive power not only of cultural constraints but of the literary texts which incarnate them.

 pseudopodium: Brontë
And now there's another one, this time dedicated to the theory that Charlotte Brontë was a criminal mastermind who successfully poisoned Emily Brontë, Anne Brontë, and Branwell Brontë, only to be poisoned in turn by her new husband.
Probably because Charlotte Brontë revealed herself in her writing (unlike Emily Brontë) with a singularly honest viciousness (unlike Anne Brontë), she's often been targeted by simpleminded vulgarizers.
I just recently got over the appearance about five years ago of a "historical novel but it's really the truth, it's just that I don't want to be bothered with proving any of my ridiculous delusions" dedicated to the theory that Henry Adams killed his wife, Clover Hooper Adams, during her oh-so-convenient suicidal depression.

 "We Are Three Sisters" Self and Family in the Writing of the Brontës Drew Lamonica
While biographers have widely acknowledged the importance of family relationships to Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Brontë and to their writing processes, literary critics have yet to give extensive consideration to the family as a subject of the writing itself.
These chapters also introduce the Brontës' early collaborative writings, showing that the sisters' shared interest in the family's formative role arose from their own experience as a family of authors.
Of the numerous studies on the Brontës, comparatively few consider all seven novels, and no previous study has undertaken to examine the Brontës' writing in the context of mid-Victorian ideas regarding the family—its relationships, roles, and responsibilities.

 Bronte Family
The Brontë Family is best known for Charlotte, Emily, and Anne, famous English writers of the 1840s and 1850s.
The Rev. Brontë, a native of County Down in Ulster, was the eldest son of Hugh Prunty, also known as Hugh Brunty, and changed the orthography of his last name several times during his lifetime, from Brunty to Branty to Bronte to Bronté to Brontë.
The spelling changes have been said to have been influenced by the classical figure Brontes, or by the gift of land in the town of Bronte, Sicily in 1799 from Ferdinand I of the Two Sicilies to Admiral Horatio Nelson.

Ideas related to phrenology turn up frequently in the novels of the Charlotte Bront, and phrenological assumptions also appear in Anne Bront's works.
Combe's Elements of Phrenology (1834) is rarely placed on anybody's reading lists, yet the ideas he promotes were far from disregarded by the general public of the nineteenth century.
Combe's prose is that of an enthusiast, and, as such, it is often entertaining, even when it is at its most dogmatic.
