in consequence of the missive, I'm not sure that the Bennets are the principal family, penned by kathleen (elder)
Probably they are equal in rank but the odds are the Bennets with £2000 a year are well up at the top of the 24 families (doesn't this sound rather Godfatherish?). They have quite a large income by the standards of the gentry, and while there may be other families with £2000 a year, there problaby aren't many. Possibly some of the "families who went to London during the winter" are alos on about £2000 a year... So I'd say the Bennets are near the top of the totem pole in their neighbourhood.
