1800: Great Bookham at the Time of Jane Austen, Fanny Burney, and R. B. Sheridan.
Intro by Rev Alan Jenkins, Rector of St Nicolas Church, Great Bookham. Mrs Austen's cousin (also named Cassandra Leigh) married Samuel Cooke, Reverend at St Nicolas, Great Bookham, Surrey. Austen visited here while writing Emma. Mrs Austen's cousin was very proud that famous author Fanny Burney lived in her town, and wrote a novel of her own, Battleridge.
