  • PARISHES, PARISHIONERS AND PERIPHERIES: RESIDENCE AND STATUS IN EARLY MODERN LONDON

    This project explores the social, geographical and physical boundaries encompassed by the early modern metropolitan parish. By examining moves within and across parish boundaries and durations of residence, it investigates the relationships between social and economic mobility and individual and familial status with place. The research will enable a broader appraisal of the role of the parish in the social life of early modern urban communities.
