Langford, Nottinghamshire - Industry


In 1800 Langford had a population of 124, with 116 employed in agricultural work which is likely to have been farming due to the landscape of the area.

In 1831 there were only 3 occupational categories in use in Langford, all related to agricultural work which is common in a civil parish at this date. These occupations were farmers employing labourers, farmers not employing labourers and agricultural labourers. Over half were agricultural labourers, just over a quarter farmers employing labourers and only 4 farmers not employing labourers.

By 1881 the range of occupational categories became more varied. ‘Agriculture’ was still recorded as the most common occupation in Langford with 43 males and 1 female working in this category. The second most prevalent occupation was ‘Domestic service or offices’ which was subject to mainly female workers (13) and only two men in this category.

Other occupations of Langford in 1881 included working as ‘General/Local Government’, ‘Professionals’, ‘Transport and Comm’, ‘Animals’, ‘Wrks in Dress’ and ‘Wrks in Var. Mineral Substances’. These were less popular occupations at the time and only had 13 people working between these categories. The more laboured occupations only had males working in them, e.g. ‘Wrks in Var. Mineral Substances’, whereas the females mainly worked in less physical environments such as ‘General/Local Government’ work. It was also recorded that there were 13 ‘persons without specified occupations’ and 16 with ‘unknown occupations’. All 13 in these categories came under female.

Famous quotes containing the word industry:

    ... we’re not out to benefit society, to remold existence, to make industry safe for anyone except ourselves, to give any small peoples except ourselves their rights. We’re not out for submerged tenths, we’re not going to suffer over how the other half lives. We’re out for Mary’s job and Luella’s art, and Barbara’s independence and the rest of our individual careers and desires.
    Anne O’Hagan (1869–?)

    Whatever I may be, I want to be elsewhere than on paper. My art and my industry have been employed in making myself good for something; my studies, in teaching me to do, not to write. I have put all my efforts into forming my life. That is my trade and my work.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    Do not put off your work until tomorrow and the day after. For the sluggish worker does not fill his barn, nor the one who puts off his work; industry aids work, but the man who puts off work always wrestles with disaster.
    Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)
