They were in written form under Louis XIV, who began the whole practice of convoluted court etiquette. Madame Campans refers to the "rules" in her memoirs from the time she was M-A's lady in waiting as being written, but she doesn't say whether altogether in a neat book or exactly what form the writing down of such rules took. I'm sorry I can't give you chapter and verse, but in light of the complexity and the absolute minutia of court etiquette, I believe it is relatively safe the rules would indeed be written down.

I also suspect the court etiquette during the Napoleonic empire was based in no small part on the memories of the returned emigres, many of whom found employment teaching all those upstarts which fork to use when, and written down for the slow learners.
