This chapter examines female migrant behaviour in eighteenth-century Rheims. Using the evidence of family reconstitution, tax and census listings, it reconstructs and presents the lives of migrant women in a rapidly developing textile town. The chapter also characterises the working life of the following categories of urban women: dowried young spinsters, undowried spinsters, married women (housewives), young widows without children, young widows with children, older widows without children, older widows with children and older spinsters.

Keywords:   migrant behaviour, Rheims, family reconstitution, tax, census, spinsters, housewives, widows
