This article re-assesses key aspects of non-gentry kinship relationships and family life in the early modern period by analysing one particular family of yeomen and husbandmen over several generations across the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The article reconstructs the genealogy of this family and places it within a wider context by assessing what this reveals about their kinship and family relations, their faith and (self-) identity and their socio-economic roles and positions.
