Quick Reference

It is clear from the analysis of probate inventories and other records that the general standard of living rose considerably in the early modern period, particularly after the Restoration (see standard of living debate). See Lorna Weatherill, Consumer Behaviour and Material Culture in Britain, 1660–1760 (1988), and Peter Earle, The Making of the English Middle Class: Business, Society and Family Life in London, 1660–1730 (1989). For the even greater changes since the late Victorian period, see John Benson, The Rise of Consumer Society in Britain, 1880–1980 (1994).
