    I could sooo live back in the day when INVENTIONS and retired schoolmasters drew diagrams and wrote books identifying WHATEVER they were studying!! Just think of the Victorian and Edwardian clothes... AND the servants doing almost all the chores... from about the mid 1800's to the early 1900's... in the basic (European) middle class family beginning with a 'general' maid (13-15 yr old) who was a live in helper. Later, if money afforded it, there was a 'specific' house maid, or nurse maid (depending on the need) hired. After the first two maids were in place, a 3rd servant worked in the home as, the cook.

That was the BASIC middle class family's servant's list.

Those would take titles of cook, parlour-maid and house-maid, or, cook, house-maid, and nurse-maid. The Lady/Mistress of the house did NOT 'do' everything!! As income increased (upper class) generally a manservant was hired. His duties combine indoor work, such as waiter/butler, or the man of the house's valet/dresser helper plus 'caretaker' for the horse and carriage.

More horses/carriages require another manservant. The next manservant may be the houseman while your first man became coachman/groom. If a second man wasn't needed, then maybe the lady of the house chose a personal maid (for all dress care, i.e., mending, packing, removing stains, running baths, hair care, serving tea, keeping water jugs full, shoes cleaned, things polished, etc.) or... if you didn't need a personal maid...

maybe your grateful cook needed a kitchen-maid/assistant cook, or maybe the family requires that nursemaid now. If income is beyond six servants, you are WEALTHY and may have:

stable boys, gamekeepers, gardeners, a housekeeper (head of all the maids) additional maids, i.e. more lady's-maids, upper and lower parlour-maids, a laundry-maid (or more than one) with additional kitchen/scullery-maids... maybe even footmen, valets or a chef!! I think a house-steward is like the head of the house *stuff* and the housekeeper answered to him.

ANYWAY... LOL!! Thought you'd like a bit of that trivia.
