Mansfield Park would return a greater living than Thornton Living, the latter returning just on its own 700 pounds before any contribution by a wife to a couple's income.

When Sir Thomas scolds his elder son Tom for his debts (chapter 3), he says Tom has robbed Edmund of more than half the income which ought to be his with the selling of the Mansfield living to someone else. A living that would have been given Edmund.

Sir Thomas says, "You have robbed Edmund for ten, twenty, thirty years, perhaps for life, of more than half the income which ought to be his." I am not sure of whether this means that the Mansfield living itself each year is twice as much as the Thornton Lacey living, or whether it is intended that Edmund would someday hold both livings and have the income of both, with Mansfield being worth a few hundred more than Thornton Lacey.
