] Just how rich is Mr. Knightley? I can't recall from the book if it gives his wealth, and I've stupidly loaned my book to a friend, so I can't look it up myself.
Kathy, I don't think Jane Austen mentions an exact sum but I believe she mentions that Donwell comprises an entire parish so the estate must have made Mr. Knightley very rich. Sorry I can't be more exact but mabey some of Regency experts will know its exact worth.
