Dashwood Family Tree
Alright, the Dashwood family tree can get incredibly complicated, so I made this to help you out. Without any spoilers, this is the family you need to know from the get-go.
So, we’ve got three sisters, Elinor Dashwood, Marianne Dashwood, and Margaret Dashwood. They have an older brother, John Dashwood, who’s from their father, Henry Dashwood’s, previous marriage. John Dashwood marries Fanny Dashwood (previous Fanny Ferrars) and has Henry Dashwood.
Fanny Ferrars also has two brothers, Robert Ferrars and Edward Ferrars who we get to see quite a bit of throughout the novel.
