The Mobility of English Tenant Farmers, c. 1700-1850
AbstractThis paper surveys the literature on the mobility of eighteenth and early nineteenth century English rack rent tenant farmers and farming families, and provides new quantitative estimates of the speed of turnover in the market for farm tenure. The evidence presented should increase the degree of belief in the stylised fact of relatively low tenurial mobility, although the extent of inertia should not be exaggerated.
