Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley are both gentlemen, which means they lived off of inherited family wealth. When the book refers to Mr. Darcy's ten thousand pounds a year, that's rent money he gets from tenants living on land owned by his family. That's also how Bingley would have gotten his income. They would have certain responsibilities as the land owners, but not a "job" as such.

Please rate my answer positively so I get paid for the time spent answering your questions. If you're on a mobile device, you may have to scroll to the left. Thank you.
