Exactly. The Morlands were not poor..their main "problem" if they had one was that they DID have a large family, so providing for so many chidlren was going to be a bit of a stretch even on a comfortable income and so Catherine while she had a modest dowry, wasn't likely to be the heiress to £10k or £20k, and so the General didn't think she was rich enough for Henry. THe Thorpes were only dubiously genteel, IIRC and had virtually no money.
