Regency Man Monday - Charles Austen
In 1801, Charles was stationed on the HMS Endymion. When he returned Portsmouth he presented each of his sister with a topaz cross on a gold chain. It is believed that these necklaces were the inspiration for the cross given to Fanny by her brother in Mansfield Park.
