This sounds like Upstairs Downstairs.

It was set at the beginning of the 20th century, and the woman was the
wealthy one. But the hubby was an MP and they married over the objections
of her parents. The last name (Bellamy) begins with "B" which sounds a lot
like a P.

Revealing that I have any familiarity with such matters can only decimate
my street cred....
