At the end of Chapter 4 we read that the Netherfield party "spoke of the Meryton assembly ... ." I just checked, and that is the first mention of Meryton. So we knew that Mr Bingley was renting Netherfield, and we knew there was an assembly/ball, but it's not until after the assembly that we know the location.
Very interesting -- JA obviously didn't think the name of the town to be important prior to that.
