Making Sense of English Law Enforcement in the 18th Century David Friedman The criminal justice system of England in the 18th century presents a curious spectacle to an observer more familiar with modern institutions. The two most striking anomalies are the institutions for prosecuting offenders and the range of punishments. Prosecution of almost all criminal offenses was private, usually by the victim. Intermediate punishments for serious offenses were strikingly absent.
It is only a slight exaggeration to say that, in the early years of the century, English courts imposed only two sentences on convicted felons. Either they turned them loose or they hanged them. In parts III, IV and V I argue that, contrary to the view of almost all modern commentators and many contemporary ones, these institutions may have made considerable sense. The shift in the early 19th century towards punishment by imprisonment and law enforcement by paid police, and the later shift to public prosecution, were driven by discontent with the performance of the existing institutions.
But it is far from clear whether that discontent was justified. I will argue that both contemporary critics and modern historians have missed important elements in the logic of the system of private prosecution, elements that help explain why it lasted as long as it did and worked as well as it did. The Private Prosecution of Crime England in the 18th century had no public officials corresponding to either police or district attorneys.
Constables were unpaid and played only a minor role in law enforcement.

Vintage tatting shuttles from the early twentieth century. Newer type of shuttle with hook. Tatting with a shuttle is the earliest method of creating tatted lace. A tatting shuttle facilitates tatting by holding a length of wound thread and guiding it through loops to make the requisite knots. Shuttles often have a point or hook on one end to aid in the construction of the lace. Antique shuttles and unique shuttles have become sought after by collectors — even those who do not tat.
To make the lace, the tatter wraps the thread around one hand and manipulates the shuttle with the other hand. No tools other than the thread, the hands and the shuttle are used, though a crochet hook may be necessary if the shuttle does not have a point or hook.

Although, there is a time and place for using underlinings or a lining or both. Or even leaving off linings altogether and simply relying on hem facings and petticoats to keep the silhouette in place. Read up on flatlining sleeves as well. But to make a 19th century skirt consists of a little more than just sew the side seams, turn up the hem and stitch, and slap on a waistband.
The basis of underlining is to support your fashion fabric in the hand of the fabric, layers of trim, and the fashionable silhouette. Sometimes your fashion fabric is sturdy enough on its own to not need an extra layer of support. Cotton twill skirt flatlined with stiff cotton organdy to support the hand stitched ruffles on the right side How to Flatline Skirt Panels The process to add an underlining to your skirt is fairly straightforward. To flatline you cut both the fashion fabric and the underlining fabric from the skirt panel pieces.
Then you lay each matching panel together, wrong sides together and baste around the edges. When flatlining skirt panels I recommend only basting the long, vertical edges and leave the waistband and hem edges open. After seaming, those edges can be basted together if needed.

The basic undergarment for women in the 18th century is the shift, also known as the chemise if you were French or sark if you were Lowland Scots.

This works out at around 6. While currency subdivisions existed I believe the smallest coin in common use was the farthing , this only gives 26 ‘coins’ to be spent during the course of a day. Assuming a significant portion were expended on rent, how would a labourer buy a single pint of ale? Looking at common wages today, one can assume that pounds a month is the minimum working class salary.
This leaves 2, pence a day, with a pint of milk costing 45p. This kind of value cannot be represented using 19th-century worker’s wages, due to the lack of sufficiently small coins. So did people buy in bulk?
