Examining men and women ‘in trade’ in Manchester during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
The death of the head of household, and the subsequent transfer of wealth between individuals and across generations could both cause and exacerbate deep fault lines within families, resulting in bad feeling, estrangement, and – in some cases – family members dragging each other through the courts.
The talk is presented by Hannah Barker, Professor of British History at the University of Manchester and Chair of Manchester Histories.
