Guy is a pupil at a public school called Twyford Boys. He likes computer
games and television, but in his Edwardian life thinks he will enjoying flying
kites in the garden and playing with toy soldiers.
Anna describes Guy as being a bit like Just William, noisy and mischievous,
and she anticipates he will keep a tutor on their toes. Although Guy thinks
the clothing might be itchy and difficult to get on, he is particularly looking
forward to having servants and ringing for the footman to say "Oi, servant,
get me a cup of tea!"
"It would be good to have someone to clear up my toys, because at home Mummy
insists that I have to clear them up piece by piece by piece."
Master Guy is the only person in Manor House who has free
access to both the upstairs and downstairs areas of the house. In fact, he
probably has more daily contact with the servants than he does with his parents,
as would have been the case for the son of such a family.
Master Guy is dressed, fed, entertained and put to bed every day not by
his mother or father but by
Rob the second footman.
Master Guy is told by the house rules, "As the Youngest Son, you should look up
to your elder Brother Mr Jonathan,
Master of the House
and follow their example."
