Can't find any good easy references through searching so calling out to the general Dwiggie readers: am I crazy to think some richer Georgians would have a carriage or some kind of cart specifically for servants/baggage to follow behind their main mode of transportation?

For example: when the Darcys, Bingleys, and Hursts travel to Pemberley, they would also have a variety of things and people to take with them. Does that all somehow fit on their carriages (presumably two, as Darcy has one and Bingley does), or would their also be a separate vehicle that brought whatever/whoever wouldn't fit. Thinking Darcy, Bingley, and Hurst each have a valet; Georgiana, Miss Bingley, and Mrs. Hurst all have maids. That's not counting footmen/coachmen, and then all the trunks of stuff. Doable, perhaps (I've certainly packed a lot more into tiny cars than people thought was possible) but would some people be able to afford at least more set of horses to carry the excess?
