This chapter discusses the history of enclosure in the midlands, specifically 1,568 parishes in the counties of Northampton, Rutland, Cambridge, Huntingdon, Oxford, and Bedford, to name a few. Enclosures were considered as pivotal events during the development of agrarian relations in the early modern England, which was due to the official responses and its direct effects. It has been determined that enclosure was disruptive in the midlands, which was influenced by London and a handful of other industrial cities, thus making it the ideal place to conduct an analysis of the effects of enclosure.
