Throughout the books in this series that I've read so far, there is an occasional reference to the "ton".   


The word is usually italicized, but don't ever recall a mention that referenced what the "ton" is.   Anyone know?  TIA

I have always interpreted "The Ton" not only in this series but in other books that I have read, to mean the higher echelons of British Society.
