John's wife, Fanny, convinces him to deny, in the name of their only son Henry's inheritance, his widowed stepmother and her three daughters the generosity understood at pap's deathbed. When the heiress-in-law's brother Edward Ferrars visits, he proves a perfect, understanding gentleman mutually drawn to eldest daughter Elinor, but she's told mother Ferrars makes inheriting the vast family fortune conditional on marrying well.

Therefore Willoughby's discussion with Marianne about Lord Byron's poetry is anachronistic because Byron was born in 1788 and is only twelve years of age at the time his poetry is being discussed by the characters.
