Sauce American, as I like to call it, goes way back but ketchup was different then and it has been around a long time. I think it should be a mother sauce.

Lee & Perrins' Worcestershire sauce goes back to around 1837.

Ketchup and mayo ARE pretty refined when people bother to make them themselves...

Isn't hard to believe that ketchup and mayo and A1 were once considered refined sauces.
