|It's possible that Henry kept a small staff

in consequence of the missive, to persuade her brother to settle with her, penned by Stephanie
at his estate, and maybe he didn't want to add to that staff just so Mary would have a place to stay. Also, I suspect that Mary didn't want to live alone on the estate, seeing Henry only on those rare occasions when he visited -- she might not need to be entertained, but she would certainly want some company!
If Henry actually settled at the estate, that would mean he would be spending a good amount of time there and not just dropping by occasionally for business. It might be proper for Mary to be there alone most of the time, but it wouldn't be very considerate.
