Comparing the novel Emma and its movie adaptation a striking difference is noticeable. Although most characters are maintained in the adaptation Jane Fairfax is left out. Jane Fairfax is a woman about the age of Emma, who passed most of her life in the company of Colonel Campbell (a friend of her father’s), his wife and his daughter. Colonel Campbell is described as a respectable man who decided to take care of the little girl after the death of her parents. Janes nearest of kin were her grandmother and her aunt, both of them lived a humble life and hardly had a sufficient income. Her aunt Miss Bates was a very popular and always welcomed person, although she was “neither young, handsome, rich nor married” (cf. Emma p.22). She cares for her mother, Jane’s grandmother, the widow of a former vicar of Highbury and together they live in a small and simple home.
