in consequence of the missive, Is anyone worthy of Elizabeth?, penned by Robbin
>>The only other source of potential candidates for Elizabeth’s hand, that I can think of, is those who outrank her, but given her views on this subject as noted in Chapter 5 when she rebuts Anne’s concerns about her useful companion<<
I don't think there is the same constraints among marrying within the nobility. I think she would be willing to marry someone who was above a baronet. I do not think she would lower herself to marry outside of the nobility, despite Mr. Darcy's 10,000 a year!
I also do not think that say, a Duke's sone would have too much issue with marrying a woman who was "only" the daughter of a barnoet.
