Based on extensive primary-source research, this historical account considers the changing identity of 18th-century Colchester from the perspective of its a€œmiddling sorta€a€”a section of society often attached to cultures of politeness and to the practices of consumption and production that helped shape economic change. Painstakingly reconstructing 18th-century social networks along lines of family, kinship, gender, spatiality, religion, and politics, this study examines the relationships between individual and family biographies while reflecting on provincial urban society and culture. The guide explores how Colchester capitalized on growth in agriculturally based industriesa€”such as brewing, milling, and maltinga€”and its role as an east-coast port and its participating in the urban renaissance and commodification of polite culture.Society and Culture in Eighteenth-century Colchester Shani Da#39;Cruze ... 158; C.
