About George Austen

Some scholars believe he was mentally retarded, others that he was merely deaf, speculation rising from Jane Austen's comment that she was fluent in "finger speaking". He was sent to live away from his family when young and spent the rest of his life in Monk Sherborne villiage along with his uncle, Thomas Leigh, who also suffered from some sort of disability. Little more is known of George other than he lived relatively long life.
