RE: Mr. Hughes: actually, I read that it was common for women house-staff to be referred to as Mrs. even though they weren't married. Because, in a sense, they are married to the house, and the title confers respect. There may not have been a Mr. Hughes. Just as there probably wasn't a (deep breath) Mr. O'Brien.
