The Austen family created a collection of charades; each was written by Jane Austen or someone in her immediate family. The collection was published under the name "Charades &c. Written a hundred years ago by Jane Austen and Her Family" in 1895, long after Jane Austen's lifetime. There is an image of the cover at http://www.flickr.com/photos/praytellme/.
One of the charades I posted is from this collection; I will post more of these. Stay tuned!
