Jane Eyre

I was sitting close to this memorial plaque to Jane Eyre in St. Nicholas Collegiate Church on Christmas Day, and noticed that her anniversary was soon after. The Eyres arrived in Galway as part of the post-Cromwellian settlements and their name is remembered, not just in the oldest church in Galway, but in Eyre Square.
Jane Eyre died 259 years ago on this date, aged 88 years.
