Liverpool, 1660-1750 : People, Prosperity and Power Paperback
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 detailedpublished 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.
