The family forms of historic Europe have been fascinating in their variety.

This book is an attempt to recover the different familial systems and compare them with one another
Widows in European economy and society, 1600-1920 by Beatrice Moring( )

11 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Widows are often viewed as being marginalised in society, struggling to make a living and in need of financial and other support. However, as this extensively researched and wide ranging book reveals, widows did in fact engage very effectively in economic activity, often being in charge of families, households and commercial enterprises. The book outlines how extensive widowhood was, examines the provisions made for the support of widows, including in the form of marriage contracts, dowries and charitable assistance, and provides numerous examples of widows being economically active, paying their way and involving themselves energetically in society - one notable example being Barbe-Nicole Clicquot, who established a very successful company producing La Veuve Clicquot champagne. The book contrasts the situation in different parts of Europe, and between rural and urban areas, and shows how provision for widows both in law and in practice evolved over time. Throughout, the book includes both statistical analysis and individual case studies. Overall, it contributes a great deal both to women's history, helping to correct the image that women were victims of male society, and to family history, showing that exceptions to the "ideal" nuclear family were very common

Leaving home and living alone : an historical perspective by Richard Wall( Book )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper provides a historical and geographical perspective on the composition of households in present-day Europe. Many more people today live on their own than was the case in pre-industrial England, but there are some surprising continuities in household composition. In particular, households in the pre-industrial era were no more likely than present-day ones to include distant relatives. In addition, the recent rise in the proportion of one-parent families due to divorce has resulted in a household composition which resembles that produced by early widowhood in the seventeenth century. Nor has the recent increase in the proportion of one-person households been accompanied by any reduction in the variation within Europe in the frequency of living alone, which remains much lower in Southern and parts of Eastern Europe than in Western Europe and Scandinavia. More thorough comparisons are hampered by inconsistencies in the ways individual countries design tables to illustrate household types. The paper concludes by suggesting that a standard set of tables should be agreed upon and produced for different national populations within Europe

Female economic strategies in the modern world by Richard Wall( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This collection of essays looks at the various ways in which women have coped financially in a male-dominated world. Chapters focus on Europe and Latin America, and cover the whole of the modern period. The central argument of many contributors is that, far from some accepted stereotypes, women throughout history have not been passive in dealing with their economic needs, and that older women in particular had more agency than has previously been assumed."--Publisher's website
