Frank Churchill is the mysterious, handsome man all the women in Highbury want to get to know. His father is Mr. Weston, but he left his last name "Churchill" for his mother (Austen 14). Austen describes him as, "the boasts of Highbury... His coming to visit his father had been often talked of but never achieved" (14). He likes to flirt with women, even though he was already secretly engaged to Jane Fairfax (405). Frank also had dashingly saved Emma and Harriet from thieving gypsies, therefore, causing many women to swoon over the handsome Frank Churchill (325).
