THE NOVEL

WHO'S RICHER, MR. KNIGHTLEY OR MR. WOODHOUSE?

We figure that Mr. Knightley's land assets make him worth more than Mr. Woodhouse, even though Mr. Woodhouse has much more liquid wealth (aka money). We know that Mr. Knightley has little spare money and keeps no horses (for his carriage), but that he is the main landowner in the parish. Mr. Woodhouse, on the other hand, has plenty of money but almost no land, as Hartfield is without "extensive grounds," being in fact carved out of Donwell's extensive holdings.

WHO WILL INHERIT HARTFIELD?

If Mr. Woodhouse does not draw up a will stating otherwise, then Isabella and Emma will inherit equal shares in the estate. This is because there are no male heirs in the close familial vicinity.

WHAT DOES "N TAKE M" MEAN?

It has to do with the way the Anglican marriage ceremony is described in the Book of Common Prayer. Henry talks about it here.

WHAT DOES THE "C" IN F.C. WESTON CHURCHILL STAND FOR?

Probably "Churchill," which is Frank's mother's maiden name. As you know, it becomes his, as well, when his uncle and aunt adopt him.

WHAT ARE "MIZZLE", "ROUT CAKES" AND GRUEL"?

Mizzle is a drizzly rain. and rout-cakes are party cookies made with wine, rosewater, orange juice, and currants. For all you ever wanted to know about gruel, but were afraid to ask, visit Deborah Jane's excellent Woodhouse Defense League, a comprehensive and tongue-in-cheek look at our favorite valetudinarian.

HAVE ANY SEQUELS TO EMMA BEEN PUBLISHED?

There have been a few. You will find information and reviews at Linda's Sequels Page. There are several Emma stories written by Pemberley citizens which may be found at Bits of Ivory.
