Mrs. Morland is a character in Northanger Abbey. She is the wife of Richard Morland and mother to his ten children. The Morland family lives in Wiltshire and are tenants of Mr. Allen's.


Marriage and childrenEdit

Mrs. Morland had three sons, including James Morland, before she gave birth to Catherine, her fourth child. Everyone expected that she would die of childbirth after her third birth, but she did not and went on to have a total of ten children, much to everyone's surprise.[1] Sarah, nicknamed Sally, was her next child after Catherine.

Because of her large family, she had to leave her elder daughters, Catherine and Sally, to largely their own devices.[1]
