Lancashire north of Morecambe Bay in the early modern period (c. 1550–1750): a survey of research published since 1995

Transactions of the Historic Society of Lancashire and Cheshire (2015), 164, (1), 71–87.

Abstract

The part of the historic county of Lancashire situated to the north of Morecambe Bay has sometimes been neglected by historians, dissuaded by the poor survival of early written records relative to the rest of the county. This review article will focus upon the early modern period (c. 1550–1750), and aims to provide a road map of some of the research about the region published during the past twenty years. By highlighting some of the recent interesting historiography, it is hoped that it will encourage other historians to view this region afresh.
