One of my Grandmothers left school at 12 years old and went directly into service as a scullery maid.  After a few years she was promoted to between maid (Tweenie).

My other Grandmother did a stint as a servant about the age of 14 for a while.

Lanhydrock, that they mention, I have visited.  It's huge and one is allowed to visit the downstairs as well as the upstairs and attics (servants quarters). I have also visited Polesden Lacey

One member of my family a few generations ago also was down on his luck for a few months and lived in a work house for that time.
