in consequence of the missive, Younger sons?, penned by MarianneR
Actually I can't say that I am convinced. As most of the men who are younger sons happen to be clergy, military, or in law in JA's novels, it seemed a good possibility at the time. I realize that not all men in these professions are necessarily younger sons. I was sort of rambling while thinking, trying to come up with a possible answer to Cheryl's observation about the Admiral's attitude toward wishing for war. There didn't seem to be much information on his background so the idea of being a younger son seemed a plausible one though apparently not a good one. :) Thanks to everyone for their input.
