No Bennet sons or cousins that we know of exist to attend university with Mr. C. Of whom could he have inquired in Meryton or Longbourn, since he appears to have a very limited acquaintance anywhere? It seems hardly likely that anyone among his Hunsford parish would have known them.
Quite a puzzle to me.
