The title miss
Posted by Miss Melissa Bolin on March 26, 1998 at 23:20:00:
I know that the oldest daughter in the family is Miss Surname eg. Jane was Miss Bennet, and that the rest are Miss first name, eg. Elizabeth was Miss Elizabeth. But what happens when the eldest gets married, does the next eldest take on the Miss surname? ie does Mary become Miss Bennet when Jane and Elizabeth are married?
