Title: Lead Miners Earnings in 19th Century Allendale
Authors: Barmby, Tim
Keywords: Economic History and Conditions
Issue Date: 30-Oct-2012
Publisher: University of Aberdeen Business School
Series/Report no.: Economics Working Paper Series;2012-01
Abstract: This paper uses the records of the Beaumont/Blackett lead mining concerns in Allendale to examine the earnings for lead miners in the early 1860's. The paper matches two parts of the historical record, the Bargain books and the quarterly financial accounts, to give a more complete picture of the earnings of this group of workers than has previously been done. The paper also examines aspects of the setting of the rates in the bargains by the mine owner's agents.
