Conservatives didn't really exist until the counter revolution, right?

I agree with Vanuatu.

The concept of conservative at the time would, IMHO, have been supporters of the status quo, that is, the monarchy.

Liberalism arrived with the revolution, allowing the populous a greater say in their society, in theory anyway.

Yes.
The liberals were the "sans-culottes" ladies who were scrappers, starving and free of their skivvies, just out whoring.Embarrassed The Clergy (so called conservatives in 1789) much preferred organized ritual killing to spontaneous mass slaughters in the streets by the sans culottes. 
Influenced by the men of God, even as Robespierre once proclaimed the the liberty of all men, he undertook the systematic murder of thousands who fell short of Liberty bc they were out of step with the wishes of the State. And the "Council of Safety" led by Robespierre denied individual rights to those who opposed the state and "The Terrors" were visited on anyone who spoke against State or tried to retain their property or flee. 
The details of the slaughter are quite inhuman, reminiscent of Nazis running out of ammo and looking for the least personal way to murder thousands of poor and rich alike. The methods are similar to those used during The Rape of Nan King.

Were philosophes conservatives?  Or were they just another form of casualty?
