This chapter discusses the family and household patterns of members of the major occupational groups in the Potteries. It examines, analyzes, and compares the patterns of employment over a person's lifetime, family employment, and fertility. The patterns that emerge help illuminate the ‘relative autonomy’ or flexibility of individual and family relationships during the nineteenth century.

Keywords:   occupational groups, family relationships, employment, autonomy, flexibility, nineteenth century
