I believe it's clear that Louisa is the eldest, but the text is ambiguous as to whether Caroline is older or younger than Bingley. (I think the wording from Bingley's POV is that Caroline is the younger sister (compared to Louisa), but that doesn't rule out C being older than him.)
My own feeling is that it would be unlikely for Caroline as the youngest sibling to show such disrespect to her older brother as to interfere in his life by manipulating his relationship with Jane. I can't see that, given the patriarchal society. Her attitude to him seems more like a long-standing condescension to a younger sibling.
Other people see it differently. *shrug*
