I am writing a children's book set in Tudor times and this blog has already been a great source of information, so thanks!
I have a couple of questions about servants in wealthy Tudor households:
Would there have been a head servant in charge of the others? Something like a butler? This is for a character in the book, so it would be really helpful if you could also describe the way they would dress.
Could you tell me where the servants would sleep. Would their rooms be at the top of the house as in Victorian times?
Also, I'd really like look at a floorplan of a large Tudor house, do you know of any sites on the internet where I could see one?
Your help will be very much appreciated.
