|'reserved herself an income'.

I was interested to read Jane Austen's comments on Mrs Knight's giving up the Godmersham Estate to Edward as being 'no such prodigious act of Generosity'.
Wouldn't it be customary for a benefactress to reserve herself an income ?
Is Jane seemingly critical of Mrs Knight?
Any thoughts ? :)
