in consequence of the missive, Speculating about age, penned by Line
I think that would be about the right age. Alot would depend on family circumstances at the time..but it was not unusual for young ladies to marry around the age of 16.
I have a couple of families in my database that are similar to the Bennets situation from that same time period being written about..the average age the daughters married was in deed 20 years old.
