The Loes and Wilford Poor Law Incorporation, 1765-1826

Volume Number: 62

From: £15.00

This volume, focussing on 33 parishes in the hundreds of Loes and Wilford in east Suffolk, is the first detailed exploration of rural incorporation.  The Incorporation’s approach was truly revolutionary: setting the able bodied to work in the purpose built house of industry, educating the children, punishing the indolent, and caring for the sick in a humane way.  By charting the incorporation’s complete history, this volume allows for the exploration of a wide range of social policies implemented during those years.
