from chap 1
This very awkward history of Mr. Elliot was still, after an interval of several years, felt with anger by Elizabeth, who had liked the man for himself, and still more for being her father's heir, and whose strong family pride could see only in him, a proper match for Sir Walter Elliot's eldest daughter. There was not a baronet from A to Z whom her feelings could have so willingly acknowledged as an equal.
She would prefer to remain always the first lady of Kellynch Hall and may have warded off a few presumptive suitors, when still in her first "bloom"(!). And once Mr Elliot had snubbed them/her, she was somewhat older and Sir Walter's finances more offputting by the year.
