In Charlotte Bronte's novel, Jane Eyre inherits £20000. Assuming this takes
place around 1840, how much is that worth today? Just curious as she
promptly gives away 75% of it.

Thanks,

Anna.
20,000 pounds is equal to 26,030 American dollars. 26,030American dollars in 1840 is worth 786,844 dollars in 2020.

What rate of return or inflation are you assuming, and how frequently are you compounding?
