Abstract [en]

This is a study that will focus on the possibility to learn information about a town and its inhabitants of the 18th century by analyzing individual titles in the church records. The records that are used in this study are marriage registration administrated by the local church of the town of Uddevalla. The records are very detailed and each individual registered have a title, such as “tradesman” or “maiden”. Since the source are a registration of all the weddings that took place during the period of 1700 to 1749, the source gives very broad and valid information about the inhabitants of the town. By inspecting the titles of the individuals listed in the source, we learn that the town of Uddevalla had a lot of craftsmen, dragoons and public servants for the era. During the early years in the source the largest groups were farmers and farm-helpers as well as a large group of “young men”, lacking a title connected to a profession.  The variety of craftsmen increases steadily throughout the time period being studied, meaning that there were a lot more specialization among the craftsmen, as well as an increase in the total number of craftsmen in the wedding registry. The women’s titles are also studied in detail and absolute majority of the women had the title maid. Those women that were not maids possessed the titles of “jungfru”, meaning something similar to maiden. “Jungfru” were commonly married to men with a higher status kind of title, thus implying that these titles were of a high status themselves.
