Servants: English Domestics in the Eighteenth Century

Synopsis

For the first time since 1956, here is a book about eighteenth-century servants, male and female, in large and small households, in town and country, seen not only through the diaries and journals of the masters, but also through the eyes of the few domestic servants who recorded their own experiences. Offering new material on the sexuality of servants, on kin as servants and on pauper servants, Bridget Hill's fascinating and detailed essays provide a new perspective on an important facet of English domestic life in the eighteenth century.
