Great synopsis as usual! As for the servants being called by their employers' names, I first became aware if it watching Gosford Park. Apparently the servants are called by the name of The Lord or lady that they work for when traveling (thus Anna being Miss Crawley and O'Brien and Bates being the Granthams). Apparently it helps to keep all of the new servants straight when traveling to homes where other staffs are established.
