Jobs that black people could have in the victorian age.

I am writing a story set in England, during the Victorian age.

I am considering developing a character, English nationality yet of black descent, who works as a butler or some other domestic type within an upper middle class household.

Would this be plausible for a black man to work at during Victorian England?

I've tried searching online with terms, such as, "Africans Victorian age," "blacks, Victorian age," "black people, Victorian age," and "African people Victorian age." I tried all that and got nothing.
