I love that Kipling brought this phrase to public attention! (or did he invent it?) A.A. Milne writes in his autobiography that he befriended someone in WW1 because they both loved Jane.

Yes, I was rather charmed by the Kipling story too!

According to the Kipling soc 'Janeites' was coined by George Saintsbury http://www.kipling.org.uk/rg_janeites1.htm though they seem to have been using wikipedia as a source so how reliable that is, I don't know.
