    Early Modern: Introduction
  • . Dartford was one of nearly 700 market towns in England.
  • . These towns traditionally depended on agriculture and trading for their prosperity.
  • . Dartford was more fortunate than many other similar towns because it was relatively close to London and was sufficiently far from other Kentish market towns not to have to compete for trade and marketing opportunities.
  • . Ordinary townspeople who did not own land or property found expenses rising and income falling.
  • . There was growing concern nationally and locally about the number of beggars and paupers roaming the streets of towns like Dartford.
  • . Sir Martin Frobisher’s smelting works, Sir John Spilman’s paper mill, Godfrey Box’s iron-slitting mill, and other less prominent manufacturies created a mini ‘industrial revolution’ at a time when many other similar towns were still relied on an agriculturally based economy.
