Question

July 31, 2017 06:13AM
I just remembered that I meant to ask you about Sanderson. Was there a reason Mr Bennet was misinformed that Sanderson was the son of an earl?
Quote

Do not be deceived by his low standing in the military. Sanderson is the son of the Honorable Alexander Sanderson and is the younger brother of the Earl of Alton in Somerset. It seems that his father married Lord Miles Stover’s only child: Gertrude Stover. Sanderson will inherit a large estate from on the Baron.

When he was only the grandson of an earl?
Quote

“Wait, I thought you had told Uncle Thomas that Sanderson was the younger son of the Earl of Alton?”
James looked at his granddaughter in surprise and replied, “No, I said his father was the younger brother of the current Earl.”
“Maybe I am remembering the letter wrong.” Elizabeth hesitated only a second before she added, “However, when you see Uncle next, you might want to mention it. I am sure Uncle has been under the impression that Catherine is being courted by the younger son of an Earl.”

Did I miss something that explains why there was a mix-up?
