Regency guardianship

Setting: Regency England, 1815-1818
Already googled: Regency Guardianship, regency guardian.

A gentleman and his wife depart for Egypt, leaving their fourteen year old daughter in the charge of his sister, and her husband. They're going to be away for a considerable amount of time, and won't be back for her Season. Would it be possible for the man to write a legal document, giving his brother-in-law the ability to consent to her marriage, in his place?
