Longbourn

A picture of Longbourn from a movie adaptation

Longbourn is an estate located in Hertfordshire, near the town of Meryton. It is owned by Mr. Bennet and it is where his wife and five daughters live. It brings an annual income of £2,000.

The estate is entailed to the nearest male relative, which makes it impossible for the daughters to inherit. William Collins, a cousin of Mr. Bennet's whose father he disliked, is his heir[1].
