"The Sloanes are good, honest, respectable people, of course. But when all's said and done, they're Sloanes."
Rachel Lynde[src]

The Sloane family was a large and disagreeable family in Avonlea, Prince Edward Island.

About the familyEdit

The Sloanes were similar to the Pyes, in size and in personality. Although they were disagreeable, they were also very friendly and kind most of the time. Sloanes were known to get seasick easily.

"Every village has such a family; good, honest, respectable people they may be, but SLOANES they are and must ever remain, though they speak with the tongues of men and angels."
Marilla Cuthbert's thoughts on the Sloane family[src]
