in consequence of the missive, I think Barbara has just summed it up,, penned by Paisley
The woman's property did not necessarily become the husband's, if legal means were in place prior to her marriage. If money was settled on her, or her children, it was kept out of the husband's control.
However, Mrs. Dashwood's uncle could not enforce such a stricture across the generations after his own demise, so I suppose he had to assume it would not be done.
I still mourn that he did not assume the family would not be taken care of unless he did it.
