If you want girl parts, there are plenty of maids, a cook, village ladies and gossips. The second post has a cast list you can run your eye down. (You can claim more than one.)

I'd suggest to start with that either Miss Piper or Miss Hornblower would be fun - that's a ballroom scene so they all gossip about each other's clothes and behaviour! Then you could also take a housemaid role, or another part that takes your fancy.
OK, thanks. :D May I take Miss Piper and Mr. Gibson's maid, Bethia?

Both good choices! Bethia gets fired for scandal in the household - oooh, naughty! ;)

OK, some of the MW is up - all the characters are in, and the first 20 chapters of text links. But it is getting late here and I don't want to make mistakes with this, so the rest will go up tomorrow. Goodnight!

May I give you an advice? Could you please state in the mw in which (or, at least, in how many) chapters every charechter appears (sorry for the spelling mistake)? This way, people will know, without effert, how large each role is and decide wether to commit.
Want to read about happy people? Try the Subjection of Isabel Carnaby.
Like mysterys? Try A Coin of Edward VII and The Maid of Sker.
Want to read a delightful romance? How about mrs. Dymond?
Love Louisa May Alcotte? Moods is waiting for you.
