dc.description.abstractThe Ties that Bind: Marriage, Family, and Fortune offers a fresh perspective on the European family through a parallel study on a group of English and Venetian families during the latter part of the seventeenth century. The families in this study were all connected to the legal profession, and shared a similar socio-professional status. However, their worlds were remarkably distinct, England and Venice were governed by different norms and laws, they represented different sides of the confessional divide, as well as the North-western European divide. These differences had an impact on their experiences of family life. This study will focus on three major themes, marriage strategies, inheritance and family affiliation, and family relationships and hierarchies. Through these three issues, this study will examine in parallel how the different geographical, cultural and legal settings of England and Venice impacted experiences of marriage and family life. Building on a wide range of sources including, testaments, court cases, citizenship reports, family archives, and correspondence, this thesis will examine the English and Venetian families through a series of case studies. In so doing it will provide a broader range of experiences within the family between two rather distinct groups.en
