Ch 24: "Anne had no Uppercross Hall before her, no landed estate, no headship of a family; and if they could but keep Captain Wentworth from being made a baronet, she would not change situations with Anne."
I don't see any information on where Anne and CW moved to after the wedding. Mary commented above that Anne had "no landed estate." Was she saying that Anne didn't bring with her any landed estate into her marriage? Or was she saying after marriage they were still sort of homeless?
So where did they go then? In P2 the implication was that CW was called back to sea, and Anne went with him. I suppose that's why Adm & Mrs Croft didn't have their own estates either since they were world travelers. So does that mean CW and Anne rented a place somewhere before CW got called back to sea?
Ch 24: "She gloried in being a sailor's wife, but she must pay the tax of quick alarm for belonging to that profession which is, if possible, more distinguished in its domestic virtues than in its national importance."
My guess is that maybe they rented a place in Lyme near the Harvilles since they were all such good friends, and Anne had such good memories of Lyme.
Ch 20: "I should very much like to see Lyme again," said Anne.
