Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

Main Topics:
This study contains information on the trading, social and kin networking activities of a significant proportion of the Bolton population during the period 1750-1870. Similar, though less detailed, information has been collected for Blackburn, Burnley, Oldham and Preston. As such, this study contributes to understandings of how social capital and trust changed over time and how it impacted on the social and economic development of Bolton, Lancashire and the whole country during the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
