Siblinghood and Social Relations in Georgian England

£6.99

Available in Stock

Examining the impact sisters and brothers had on 18th-century English families and society, this study sheds new light on gender, marriage, parenting and childhood at the intersection of early modern and Enlightenment ideals. Using evidence from letters, diaries, probate disputes, court transcripts, prescriptive literature and portraiture, it argues that although parents' wills often recommended their children 'share and share alike', siblings had to constantly negotiate between prescribed equality and practised inequalities.
