] I have a few questions...
] We know that Henry is a clergyman... but in the movie they somewhat confuse me when they mention his "owning his own estate" so Q#1. Is this only in the movie or is this also in the book? Q#2. If it is in the book.. did pastors have their own estate ever? it seems like in every other JA novel they are always offered a living ON an estate, not given there own... so I am very confused! I would appreciate any help please ;)
I was always confused about the money matters as well... When Catherine visits Woodston, the General goes on and on about all the improvements he made to the parsonage (just like Lady Catherine)....I've always wondered if the house would go to Henry since Frederick Tilney would inherit the Abbey... But I don't think that this would necessarily happen....
