I will return to this complication in Chapter 6, where I must concede that the General View is not at its best in spotting industrial work when it is women's work combined with (especially arable) farming. Any disruption to the harvest risked the year's output. But the risk fell unevenly in the farming world, far more heavily on the farmer than on the worker. The latter might live to regret lost winter wages in threshing, but farmers risked a year's return on land, labour, and capital. The trick for the farmers, then, was to get the others, their harvesting labourers, to behave as if their own welfare, their livelihood, depended on their adherence to the farmers' seasonality of risk.

Not all weddings of Anglicans appeared in the marriage registers, and not all the marriages that were recorded were of partners who had worked in the parish. Marriage by licence, rather than by banns, was possible between non-resident partners until Hardwicke's Act of 1753. 60 Marriage by licence offered speed and concealment to a couple, at a price, so the fewer, the wealthier, absented themselves from their own parish's registers in this way. 61 There were at least three marriage shops in operation in the 542 parishes of my sample.

There are comprehensible aesthetic and ideological reasons for holding these positions (to demonstrate the latter was in part the objective of the Hobsbawm collection), but the positions are not useful to the historian intent on studying the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Can the degree of flexibility of custom instead be inferred from the evidence of marriage seasonality? Not precisely: it was not an empty claim, in the opening chapter, that other early modern sources do not easily lend themselves to the precise dating of variations in agricultural practices.
