Charlotte and the Rev Patrick, her father, at the Parsonage, Howarth.
I did not realise, until researching on the net, that Emily had died in 1848, and Ann in 1849. Charlotte herself, died in 1855, whilst the father, Patrick outlived them all, by living until 1861. Rather sad. The parsonage is now a tourist attraction. Would be interesting to see the census returns for the property in later years.

It’s a bit of a give-away if you right mouse click on the census page image and do Save Image As, then the name of the image comes up as:

Charlotte-Bronte_1851-Census3 !!!
