This book examines the structures and texture of rural social relationships, using one type of document found in abundance over all the four component parts of Britain and Ireland: petitions from tenants to their landlords. The book offers unexpected angles on many aspects of society and economy on estates in the 17th and 18th centuries.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is an innovative book. It draws on a neglected body of documents to shed light on rural society in parts of Britain which are too often seen as peripheral to its economic and social development. It offers a great deal of food for thought that future historians would be wise to build upon." (Jane Whittle, English Historical Review, Vol. 131 (551), August, 2016)
