Abstract:
During the preparation of this thesis I have received assistance, guidance and support from both individuals and institutions. My grateful thanks go to those mentioned here and also to those unsung heroes who have given help in times of crisis. Dr. Chris French, fonner Director, Centre for Local History Studies, Kingston University, has been unfailingly supportive and his continued insistence on attention to detail has instilled a respect for the requirements of academic presentation. Other staff at Kingston who have advised over the years of research are Professor Peter Beck, Dr. Keith Grieves and Mr. Ian Gordon. The latter was responsible for the postgraduate training days 2000-2004. The staff at the Centre for Local History Studies at Kingston University, Annie Sullivan and Juliet Warren have been patient and always helpful. Peter Tilley, Honorary Research Fellow and Technical Advisor to the Centre has been responsible for the introduction to the techniques of database analysis. The principal record offices used were The National Archives, London Metropolitan Archives, Surrey History Centre and the Kingston Local History Room and Archives. Staff at all of these institutions have been courteous and supportive of the themes of the thesis, but I am particularly indebted to Jill Lamb, Archivist and Emma Rummins, Local History Officer, at the North Kingston Centre for providing the Kingston local government records of the nineteenth century.
