This chapter discusses the essence and parochial administration of the poor law, which articulated authority within parishes, sharply defining the office-holding elite of leading ratepayers, and establishing complex networks of power, paternalism and dependence. Attempts to cultivate the habit of industry, administration and administrative reform, and amendment are also described.
