The Bedfordshire Farm Worker in the Nineteenth Century

This is a collection of extracts from Parliamentary Papers and documentary material in Bedfordshire County Record Office to describe the life of the farm worker in nineteenth-century Bedfordshire. A general overview is followed by sections concerned with the poor law, the life of the labourer, migration and emigration, housing, access to land and education, and the Agricultural Labourers’ Union.

The volume begins with a tribute In Memoriam to Harold Owen White, secretary of BHRS 1965-1980.

Dr Nigel Agar taught history at North Hertfordshire College until retiring in 1992. He served on the Hertfordshire County Council from 1993-2009. His PhD, on employment and community in nineteenth-century Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire, was gained at the University of East Anglia. He taught classes on history-based topics for many years at the Bedford Retirement Education Centre.
