in consequence of the missive, Order of daughters..., penned by Karen 2L
My understanding is that one would introduce daughters by age with the oldest being Miss Bennet, the others being Miss Elizabeth, Miss Mary, etc. The exception would be a younger daughter who is married. She would take precedence over her older sisters.
This certainly was true in Victorian times, and I believe it was customary in the earlier period, too.
