Abstract

This paper reports patterns of property-holding by women and men in late nineteenth century Ontario immediately before and after legislation in 1872 and 1884 which permitted married women to hold property in their own name. The female-held share of all property and the female share of all owners in the town increased sharply. The gains were made by married women, and even more strongly by singles and widows.
