in consequence of the missive, Change is not very probable there, penned by LeeAnne
I assume that the full share of the 10,000 pounds was not available because it has been borrowed against by Sir Walter. I'm just guessing that Mary did get her share when she married Charles Musgrove (the amount originally was 15,000 pounds?) At best Elizabeth would be entitled to 5,000 pounds. That would mean only 250 pounds a year income.
I'm not sure how grand a style could be supported by so small a sum.
