The aim of this paper is to contribute to the analysis of rural society transformations at the tum of the 18th century from the point of view of socio-economic strategies. We will firstly analyse the long-term evolution of the rural patrimony of a well-to-do family, formerly small rentiers from Trives (Ourense), whose strategy to consolidate their economic and social power in the area (anti-aristocratic confrontation included) is driven by both the adaptation to an unstable conjuncture and the imitation of fidalguia's reproductive strategies.
