How Tall {Small} Was Charlotte Bronte

Charlotte Bronte was 4'9" or 4'10" (1.45m) with a very slight build.  One of her dresses that we saw today on display at the Bronte parsonage in Haworth looks tiny.

And, here's another fact: If her father had not changed his name when he came from Ireland to England to seek his fortune, she would have been Charlotte Brunty.
