Party manager ...

Does anyone know what role the 'party manager' played at a 'Ball' in the early 1800s? I came across this invitation from 1809 where one of my husband's ancestors is listed among the managers.


I'm inclined to think this person was one of the three hosts, since there is no other indication of who hosted the event.

Any thoughts?

Your hunch of a host is probably correct. He was in charge of making sure the guests were having fun!
