Britain 1625-88

Urbanisation and growth of the professional and merchant classes

Urbanisation Between the years 1625-88 levels of urban development increased. Towns became centres of distribution. Goods such as tobacco, books, textiles and tea were sold in shops.
Development of Norwich Norwich in population grew from 10,000 people in 1550 to over 30,000 in 1650. This was largely due to the cloth trade.
20 most populous towns The most populated towns in 1625 were the same in 1688. Most towns were located near rivers or coasts which allowed swift circulation of goods.
Law in 17th Century England England was an extremely litigious society as by 1625 there were proportionally as many lawyers compared to now.
Administration Competition with the French and the Dutch in the 1660 led to the necessary development of administration. War and trade demanded more services from doctors, lawyers, financiers, teachers and architects.
East India company A profitable enterprise trading in cotton, silk, tea and spices. London merchants became very rich from the Indian trade.
American trade Sugar and tobacco were also very profitable for Merchants in America.
