And I think it likely that most people in the party travelled with at least one servant each. Plus the Darcy family probably had a couple of extra servants that travelled with them between houses. Speculation on my part, but it seems very likely from everything that I've heard or read.
So, Darcy, Bingley, Caroline, Mr & Mrs Hurst, Georgiana, and at least 2 other gentlemen. Each bringing a personal servant (valet or ladies maid), plus Mrs A, a coachman, a couple of footmen, and two other servants. And suddenly you're travelling in a group of 22 people!
