Geographical mobility; general and in combination with marriage : A demographical study of the parish of Västra Eneby in the 19th century (English)
Abstract [en]

Industrialisation, modernisation and urbanisation are common words used to describe an evolving community. General patterns are often linked to the meaning of the above words but can these patterns be applied to individual parishes on the agricultural countryside?

The purpose of this study is to seek moving patterns and how they change during the 19th century in the parish of Västra Eneby, municipal of Kinda, Östergötland. The main thesis is that the study will show an increasing intensity of translocations over the parish border towards the end of the 19th century.

The study is based on material from Västra Eneby’s church archives to establish statistical data beginning with 1809 and with a sample rate of 10 years, ending with 1909. The study consists of two main parts that links together in the results. Firstly all the marriages that took place are registered, with names and place of living etc. Then all the general movements across the parish border are registered and cross referenced with the marriages to search for matching entries. This gives a general idea of the moving patterns during the 19th century, both general and those in combination with the marriage.

The results show an increasing amount of movements over the parish border closer to the 20th century. However there is no clear difference between sexes that follow through the whole duration of the time of the study.

The movements linked to the marriages also increased in the end of the years in the study. Here a much larger share of women than men moved, although this share decreases towards the end of the time of the study.

The study shows that earlier research from other parts of the country and world can be applied to the parish of Västra Eneby, although the differences between sexes are not that significant as other studies have shown.
