The History of the British Coal Industry: Volume 1: Before 1700

John Hatcher

Oxford University Press

Throughout the medieval and early modern centuries landed wealth far surpassed all other forms of wealth, and since the initiative in the exploitation of minerals resided first of all with the owners of the land under which they lay, it was destined that landowners and the patterns of landownership should be fundamental to the history of coalmining. This chapter discusses proprietors and entrepreneurs, the sources of mining capital, executive decision-making, and mining leases.

Keywords:   coalmining, coal industry, landownership, mining capital, mining leases, landowners
