The family resumed links with the county when Jane’s brother Edward was adopted as a boy by a rich relative, Thomas Knight, who owned Godmersham Park. just off the A28 between Canterbury and Ashford. When Edward later inherited the house and estate, Jane was a frequent visitor to help look after a growing number of nieces and nephews."
