My second question has to do with valets. No, not the parking kind. I mean the ones who are similar to butlers, but they serve a specific person instead of a family. My question is if there is a female equivilent to a valet, and if so, what are they called? Are they also called valets, and were they only used in certain time-periods? My setting is a pseudo-England, similar to the early 1800's, if that helps at all.
ETA: While all the dancing things about the 1800's are very interesting(and possibly useful to me later on), the two questions are refering to different periods. The first one to a modern setting, the second to my psuedo-England.
