If Honor Harrington were a real person, she would be taller than most of the Earth's population. I am guessing that David Weber forgot to mention the height of a lot of the characters. I never have felt that people were getting shorter in the Honorverse series.

I thought height was impacted by the varying gravitational levels of the various worlds of the Honorverse. Is there a theory that human beings are supposed to be gaining in height as time goes on?

Without taking into the effects of gravity on other worlds, the human race has stopped gaining much in height. In first-world countries, anyway. Remaining on Earth will likely mean there's not much more height to gain from becoming better fed. I have no idea what effect lower or higher gravity would have. https://www.scientificamerican.com/arti ... ng-taller/
