Bridget Hill

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the conditions of domestic servants in three households of clergy in England during that 18th century. These households were chosen because they have comparable incomes with similar complements of servants. This chapter describes the duties and responsibilities of the servants of the Reverend James Woodforde, the Reverend George Woodward, and the Reverend William Cole. The analyses reveal that all of these households employed kin servants and hired part-time labour in addition to their living-in-servants.
