] I believe Women could inherit money, which was "theirs" until they married. But the managing of that money was in the power of their parent or guardian until they came of age, so they didn't have much control over the situation! Women could not inherit land. I am not sure of the situation as regards investments.
But won't Anne DeBourgh inherit Rosings (assuming she outlives her mother)?
