      'At some time after their marriage, Mr and Mrs Thomas Knight call at Steventon - perhaps as part of their wedding tour - and take Edward Austen along with them for the rest of their journey. This is the beginning of the acquaintance which results some years later in their decision to adopt Edward and make him heir to Godmersham.'
