He may also die pretty soon and we don't know much about what would his son do.
Some cadet branch may be set up there (although I am not sure there is any Manderly left for that, they do not seem to be a big family and Wyman's second son is dead).
The concern would of course be that they would be getting little too powerful with this and that could cause problems in the future.
I am afraid that Manderly might have hidden his plan too well, and if he dies, not enough people will have know the truth and might accidently side with bolten believing its manderly's wish.
