In England they are not numerous, and are seldom to be found in other than the establishments of royal families, or in the retinue of embassies, or in those families who have lived upon the Continent.</p> <p class="intro">They are mostly picked men; generally wear moustaches; they are provided with two uniforms  the one the full dress emblazoned with the family arms, with which they wear a sword or <em>couteau de chasse</em>, hat and feathers. At times their dress is of a very costly description, and this is worn by them on no other than court days, or full-dress parties.</p> <p class="intro">They always attend the carriage on ceremonious occasions, then accompanying the footman.</p> <p class="intro">They have also an undress uniform. Their station is generally in the antechamber or the entrance-halL.</p> <p class="intro">They wait dinner in common with the footman, and usually stand behind their master's chair.</p> <p class="intro">The chasseurs in Germany are men who have served for six or seven years in the military profession  are well disciplined to everything appertaining to the forester's life; then they are chosen from their regiments for their fine appearance, and engaged in the house of the noble, in which they are looked upon as its guard.</p> <p class="intro">Many of them are excellent riflemen.</p> <p class="intro">The Duke of Parma, in the year 1838, when Duke of Lucca, on his visit to England, was attended by his chasseur. This man, during the shooting excursions of his Royal Highness, gave frequent proof of his skill in marksmanship, and surprising rapidity in loading for his royal master; and to such a degree did excitement rise in each domain he visited, that on the departure of the Royal Duke, the retainers spoke not alone warmly of the liberality of his Royal Highness, but also of the unerring skill of his chasseur, each (both prince and chasseur) being the theme of the mingled praise of the different gamekeepers.</p> <br /> <span class="c1"><em>The Household Manager</em>, By Charles Pierce, 1857 </span><br /> <span class="c1">Third Edition, Revised and Enlarged, 1863</span><br /> <br /></div> </td></tr></table> <div class="navbottom"> <ul class="c1"> <li><a href="/servants/servants_sitemap.html" title="Servants Sitemap">Sitemap</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_index.html" title="Servants">Intro</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_pg2.html" title="Servant">Servants</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_butler.html" title="Butler">Butler</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_hall_porter.html" title="Hall Porter">Hall Porter</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_steward.html" title="Steward">Steward</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_valet.html" title="Valet Groom">Valet</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_groom_valet.html" title="Valet Groom">Valet Groom</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_valet.html" title="Lady's Maid">Lady's Maid</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_chasseur.html" title="chasseur">Chasseur</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_courier.html" title="courier">Courier</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_maids.html" title="Maids">Maids</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_housekeeper.html" title="Housekeeper">Housekeeper</a></li> </ul> </div> <div class="navbottom"> <ul class="c1"> <li><a href="/servants/servants_kitchen.html" title="Kitchen">Kitchen</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_cook2.html" title="Cook">Cook</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_confectioner.html" title="Confectioner">Confectioner</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_stables2.html" title="Stables">Stables</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_coachman.html" title="Coachman">Coachman</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_travel_groom.html" title="Travelling Groom">Travel Groom</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_hall.html" title="Servant's Hall">Servant's Hall</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_dairy.html" title="Dairy Maid">Dairy</a></li> <li><a href="/servants/servants_nursery.html" title="Nursemaid">Nursery</a></li> </ul> </div> <!-- End Navigation --> <div class="shadow" id="footer"> <div id="nav"> <br /> <ul> <li class="selected"><a href="http://www.avictorian.com">Home</a></li> <li><a href="/sitemap.html">Main Site Map</a></li> </ul> </div> <br /> <div class="f-left"><a href="http://www.avictorian.com/">AVictorian.Com</a> 1997-Present</div> <div class="f-right">Collected &amp; Arranged by <a href="http://www.avictorian.com/">AngelS</a></div> <br /><br /> <div class="c1"><a href="http://www.copyscape.com/"><img src="http://banners.copyscape.com/images/cs-wh-3d-234x16.gif" alt="Page copy protected against web site content infringement by Copyscape" title="Do not copy content from the page.
