Spinning Books

The Spinning Books of the Forehoe Hundred House” list work expectations and amount of wool spun by the residents – primarily children – who worked in the spinning manufactory of the workhouse.  In addition to tagging each document image, we here supply a spreadsheet of information so that those interested in quantitative research can make use of the data that we have collected.  We ask that anyone using these data contact us for permission so that we can keep track of the use of the website.
