Implicit Narratives: Textuality in English Historical Demography
- Author(s): Urdank, Albion
- et al.
This article explores the diversity of individual responses to demographic events, as well as the reciprocal effects of these events, as suggested by the family reconstitution data, compiled for Horsley and Avening parishes, two contiguous rural-industrial Gloucestershire settlements, c. 1700 to 1837, at the center of which lay the dissenting, extra-parochial village of Nailsworth. In doing so, family reconstitution forms designed by the Cambridge historical demographers were used, adjusted however by nominal linkages to both conventional and less conventional sources.
