Abstract [en]

Questions of peasant mobility, household formation and the family-land bond all relate to the same issue: the system of peasantreproduction, or the replacement of households on a specific farm. The aim of this paper is to contribute to the description and understanding of such a system, using empirical evidence from early modern Sweden.

In the paper the influence on geographic mobility and household formation by the following factors is discussed: terms of tenure, the land/labour ratio, market dependence, kinship relations, gender and wealth.

The study is based on a data set including about 2,000 families living in a mid-Swedish parish (Björskog in the county of Västmanland) from year 1620 to 1820. Parish registers, tax rolls and court records are used to combine demographic information with data on land-holding, kinship relations and wealth.
