Emily Bronte Cause Of Death

March 9, 2012 by staff 

Emily Bronte Cause Of Death, Emily Jane Brontë (30 July 1818 – 19 December 1848) was an English novelist and poet, best remembered for her only novel, Wuthering Heights, now considered a classic of English literature. Emily was the third eldest of the four surviving Brontë siblings, between the youngest Anne and her brother Branwell. She published under the pen name Ellis Bell.

Emily’s health, like her sisters’, had been weakened by unsanitary conditions at home , the source of water being contaminated by runoff from the church’s graveyard. She became sick during her brother’s funeral in September 1848.

Though her condition worsened steadily, she rejected medical help and all proffered remedies, saying that she would have “no poisoning doctor” near her. She eventually died of tuberculosis, on 19 December 1848 at around two in the afternoon. She was interred in the Church of St. Michael and All Angels family vault, Haworth, West Yorkshire.
