Perhaps someone here can address this point. I believe that there were distinctions of rank among the different types of employees. For example, a governess might not be considered strictly a servant in some households where she might eat at the table with the family? I think steward could fall into this in-between category as well. And in households with a large staff the lower servants would have to wait on the higher servants as well?
