First of all, welcome to Pemberley!
Thank you! As I told Linden, I really am enjoying this site, the way it is set up, the various topics, and how nice everyone is! So friendly!
I have another question for you or whomever. Did the servants actually live in the house of the Master? (maybe that's why the houses were so large!). I think that Hill probably lived with the Bennets at Longbourne (at least according to P&P2) because I believe she comes to the door with Mr. Bennet when they receive the post around midnight about Lydia's elopement. But, would all of the servants have lived on site or only "upper" servants? Or did that also vary from home to home (and with income - probably so).
Thanks for your help. Gayle
