LocationEdit

Several members lived in the small village of Avonlea, including John and Gilbert Blythe. Later Gilbert married Anne Shirley and they moved to the House of Dreams, Four Winds, where Anne gave birth to two children Joyce and Jem, the latter of whom survived. After living there for two years, Gilbert decided they needed a bigger house to live in.

They moved to Ingleside, Glen St. Mary, where the rest of Anne's children were born. Gilbert's great-aunt, Mary Maria Blythe, was mentioned to have a home in Charlottetown, but came to Ingleside for a short visit after her mother died aged eighty-five.

Behind the scenesEdit

NamesakesEdit

Many of the Blythe children (with the exception of Joyce) were named after other people, living or dead, that had made a particular influence on Anne and Gilbert.
