In the beginning of ch.9 we are informed how the crofts idled their time away:
The Admiral and Mrs. Croft were generally out of doors together, interesting themselves in their new possessions, their grass, and their sheep.
Does that mean that not only the land but also the cattle of the Elliots now belonged to the Crofts? Would the income of sold goods (i.e. fruits or meat and wool)go to them as well or would they have to share it with Sir William E.?
