] What was common practice in regard to guardianship? I am curious about the significance of Darcy sharing the guardianship of Georgiana with Fitzwilliam.
] And why Fitzwilliam, rather than his older brother? Was it too insignificant a task for the future Lord? Or does it indicate that Fitzwilliam was more responsible? Or just that he was such great friends with Darcy?
It was most likely a way to give Fitz a bit of income for his services as a guardian. Frequently an annunity was paid to the guardian.
