After a whirlwind romance, Jane Knill became the third wife of the architect Augustus Pugin in 1848. Jane, whom Pugin described as a 'first-rate Gothic woman', kept an intermittent journal during the four brief years of marriage before her husband's tragic death from mercury poisoining. The journal makes poignant and compelling reading, describing the happiness of her life at The Grange, with six step-children and the two children she had with Pugin, cruelly ended by Pugin's fatal illness.
