To go into nitpicking mode, I've read about 3 or 4 of her books (I found more than half a dozen paperbacks of her real cheap at a library booksale), and so far I've found what seems to me two indisputable errors:
In The Grand Sophy, she has a young unmarried girl say to a marriageable brief acquaintance of the opposite sex: "Call me Sophie, everybody does".
In The Nonesuch, she has a conservative, deeply religious, somewhat old-fashioned, middle-aged rural parson's wife, of a genteel family, casually use the word "funning".
