Scientists say that a star goes super nova in our galaxy roughly every 26 years. They can see how many have gone super nova by the remnants left. They have counted the past super novas and have found there have been approximately 250 in the life of our galaxy. 26 years x 250 = 6,500 years - This is the approximate age of the Earth as written in the Bible.

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.
