Maria Brontë has Irish ancestors.
Maria Brontë is Notable.

Maria was born in 1813, the first of six children born to Rev. Patrick Brontë and Maria Branwell. Her mother died in 1821 when she was about eight years old, and the sisters grew up largely with one another, staying away from society. On July 1, 1824, Rev. Brontë sent Maria and her sister Elizabeth to the Clergy Daughters' School at Cowan Bridge in Lancashire. Her two younger sisters, Charlotte and Emily, followed a few months later. The conditions at the school were poor, and many of the students withdrew due to illness when a typhoid epidemic swept through the school that winter. Maria's health was already deteriorating, and she was withdrawn from the school on February 14, 1825. She lived at Haworth for three months before dying at the age of 12 from tuberculosis. She is buried in the family crypt in the Church of St Michael and All Angels at Haworth, Yorkshire, England.
