I want to try to tackle my Elizabethan era mystery again with my protag, Edwin, son of Earl Andrew Timmerman.* The question is, how would the boy address people? His parents? Would he call them "Mother" and "Father"? (I don't know if he'd call them 'mum' and 'dad' instead. Doesn't seem that formal for an Earl's son.) How would he address servants? Being a nice fella, he's not going to be tyrannical around them, but would he likely say, "You there, fetch xyz!" Thoughts? * Is it going to piss off a lot of people if I just make up an Earl rather than use an already-existing Earl of the time and give him a made-up son?
