I've wondered about this as well. But then I recall that Henry Dashwood might also have been "romantically inclined to hope for and believe the best" in reference to the incomes of his wife and daughters. Not only did he place his faith in John, he also failed to put aside any money for the women to live upon. Even though Henry only had Norland for a year, there may have been other ways through which he could have provided for them.
The Stanhill furniture was sold upon Henry & family's move to Norland. And what of Stanhill? Was there a profit from its sale? Or if it was rented, how did Henry spend the rent savings, once the family moved to Norland?
