Liverpool, 1660-1750 by Diana E. Ascott
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Liverpool was unique among English towns in the rate of its commercial development from the late seventeenth century. Liverpool, 1660-1750 provides the first significant detailed published study of the social and political structure of the town during this crucial period. The authors utilize a number of methodological approaches to early modern Liverpool, using parish registers, probate material and town government records to consider the characteristics of marriage, birth and death in a fast-growing and mobile population; the occupational structure, family lives and connections of workers in the town; and the political structures and struggles of the period. It is hoped that this book will provide a stimulus to further investigation of Liverpool's early and precocious eighteenth-century growth.
